BJP vice president in Uttar Pradesh Dayashankar Singh compared Chief Mayawati to a sex worker.
Mayawati had lambasted the BJP leader and said it only shows party’s frustration. “These kind of derogatory statements show that BJP is frustrated with the growing public support for BSP,” said Mayawati. Singh later apologised for his remarks.
The issue echoed in Parliament with BSP demanding arrest of Singh. Finance Minister and senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said he too was hurt with his party member’s comment.
With elections in the crucial state of Uttar Pradesh due next year, politics will be the casualty as it hits new lows.
