Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Sadhana Singh on Saturday stoked controversy allegedly by commenting that she doesn't think Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati is either a woman or a man. According to news agency ANI, Singh added that the former UP chief minister sold her dignity in exchange of power.
Addressing a rally in Chandauli, ANI quoted Sadhana an MLA from Mughalsarai saying, "I don't think the former UP CM is a woman or a man. She doesn't understand the concept of dignity. Draupadi was a victim of sexual misconduct. She vowed to get revenge. That was a self-respecting woman. Look at this woman. Everything was looted from her, despite which she sold all her dignity to get power."
