"It was demanded to present daughter and sister of Singh, just to ask them if they favoured with the derogatory remarks made by the expelled leader against BSP supremo Mayawati", he sought to clarify.
Meanwhile, a demoralised Mayawati was looking for a plank to rejuvenate her rank and file, and Singh's comment has come in as handy arsenal to get her into the combat mode.
The BSP acted with alacrity and after overnight discussions a big protest rally was organised in Lucknow on Thursday. "Besides we also demand his immediate arrest", BSP MLA Sheela Tyagi said outside the House.
AIR correspondent reports that Tetra Devi, mother of expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh had yesterday lodged an FIR in Lucknow against Ms Mayawati, Mr Naseemuddin Siddiqui, Mr Ram Achal Rajbhar and others.
"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".
Police, on Thursday detained his brother, Dharmendra Singh and question him about Dayashankar's whereabouts. "This is a great insult not only of Behenji (Mayawati) but the entire Dalit community", roared Mayawati's close aide and former Uttar Pradesh Minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui.
Speaking a function here where he felicitated the scholars, Akhilesh said that a competition has started between the BJP and BSP as to who can speak more and who can use more foul language.
"It's a sad turn of events".
The sex worker barb against Maywati by a senior functionary of BJP has given all parties an opportunity to portray themselves as saviours of Scheduled Caste as the Dalits are referred to in the Constitutional framework. Also condemning the Gujarat incident, the meeting strongly batted for providing justice to victims of such happenings. The party played to him, thereafter making him its youth wing president, then giving him a state assembly ticket in 2007, and pitching him as its second candidate in the state legislative council elections this year.
Singh, a recently appointed vice-president of the BJP's state unit, had been entrusted with a key position for the first time in his brief political career.
