In this engaging article, in yesterday’s Indian Express, Vinay Sitapati discusses a Mayawati rally and examines her views on the Constitution. In addition, he argues that ‘No other group has leveraged the Constitution the way Dalits have’ and that ‘the Constitution’s ability to accommodate the intensity of Behenji’s ambition, and variance of interpretation, says something for its elasticity’.
