BSP plans to file FIR against foul-mouthed Daya Shankar Singh over 'prostitute' remark on Mayawati
BJP Uttar Pradesh vice-president Daya Shankar Singh triggered a controversy after made objectionable remarks against BSP supremo Mayawati.
Lucknow: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is mulling to take action against the foul-mouthed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Daya Shankar Singh as the party plans to register a complaint against him for making a derogatory remark against its party supremo.
Singh, who was appointed as BJP Uttar Pradesh vice-president recently, triggered a controversy after he accused BSP supremo of indulging in ticket selling and quipped, 'Mayawati is worst than a prostitute'.
Lacerated by critics, Singh apologized today and said, "I can't even think of Mayawati Ji that way. She has come up after a lot of struggle."
But it was not enough to save his job.
The BJP removed Singh from the post of Uttar Pradesh BJP soon after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley expressed personal regret in Parliament.
"It is not right and I condemn the use of this word and if a person has said this, we will investigate. I express personal regret. I associate with your dignity and stand with you," Rajnath told Mayawati.
Daya Shankar Singh was one of the 15 BJP vice presidents in Uttar Pradesh, where campaigning for elections next year has picked up both pace and aggression.
