With him, also grew his team of dedicated workers. Mayawati led the pack. Mayawati was very effective and ruthless in implementing her mentor's plans and policies. Her dictatorial streak came in handy to crush unwanted opponents.
Thousand upon thousands of Dalit masses traversed several miles on foot and rickety bicycles to listen to their hero Kanshi Ram. His disciple Mayawati was affectionately called behenji sister by one and all.

Unmindful of his own comforts and health, he set records in cycling day and night and criss-crossing all over UP. Mayawati was extremely devoted to her mentor. She also worked long hours and, exhausted, she would often doze off in the party office. A time came when she started living in the same house with Kanshi Ram.

They identified themselves totally with her, and wished to see her installed as the first Dalit prime minister of India. This adulation and blind faith went to Mayawati's head. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts completely.
She was no exception. Whereas the illiterate and trusting Dalit masses saw a future PM in their behenji, Mayawati saw a vote-bank in them. She also saw money in her Dalit vote bank.

His dream of Ambedkarite movement was completely shattered when Dadasaheb Gaikwad joined the hands with Mohan Dhariya from Congress for a petty one Lok-Sabha reserved seat and few lakh rupees.
This event was the beginning of his dissociation from Republican Party. Manyawar Kanshi Ram Ji decided that he will develop a society which will work to spread the thoughts of Dr Ambedkar and other social reformers and will never sell themselves for a small gain.
