Obscene comments on BSPchief Mayawati,BJP removes UP leader

Lucknow, July 20 – The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) on Wednesday sacked Uttar Pradesh unit Vice-President Daya Shankar Singh from all party posts, following his alleged obscene comments on Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati.

Singh, at a press conference in Mau on Tuesday, had said that the BSP chief was giving party tickets based on the amount of money paid to her, and that even a prostitute was better than her.

His comments caused an uproar in the Rajya Sabha with the BSP leaders leading a vociferous protest. Not happy with mere removal of Singh as party office bearer, the BSP leaders demanded his arrest.

Singh, a student leader who rose in the BJP ranks recently, had unsuccessfully contested the recent polls for the Legislative Council. Last week he was appointed the party’s Vice-President in Uttar Pradesh.
