Chandigarh: A Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader on Thursday announced to give Rs 50 lakh as reward for cutting off the tongue of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Dayashankar Singh.
The BJP has already sacked its vice president Singh from all party posts after his derogatory remarks against BSP supremo Mayawati which sparked massive uproar and pushed the saffron party in a tight corner.
Meanwhile, BSP Chandigarh Unit chief Jannat Jahan offered to give a reward of 50 lakh to the person who will chop off Singh's tongue.
Singh had said that "Mayawati is breaking the dream of Kanshi Ram into pieces. Mayawati is selling tickets like a prostitute”.
"Mayawati gives tickets for Rs one crore and if there is someone who can give Rs 2 crore than she sells it for Rs 2 crore within an hour. If someone is ready to give Rs 3 crore by the evening, she gives the ticket to him. She is even worse than a prostitute," Singh had said.
Hundreds and thousands of Bahujan Samaj Party workers today took to the streets in Hazratganj, giving anxious moments to the district administration, police officers and those controlling traffic.
State BSP president Raj Achal Rajbhar who was leading the protests told the media that the statement had revealed the "anti-Dalit mentality" of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
