Nagpur: The protests over the derogatory remark against Mayawati by former BJP leader Dayashankar Singh who compared the BSP chief to a prostitute and the Una incident in which a group of Dalit youths were assaulted by a cow protection group last week for allegedly killing a cow reached Nagpur with hundreds of BSP workers hit the streets near Collector’s Office. The protesters burnt the effigy of Dayashankar Singh and demanded his arrest immediately under various sections of Indian Penal Code and SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act.
“The atrocities against Dalits are increasing day by day across the country particularly in the BJP ruled states. A pervert minded leader like Dayashankar Singh’s derogatory remarks against Bahenji (Mayawati) is insult of all women. On one hand the Prime Minister Narendra Modi gives slogan like ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao,’ and on the other hand, the BJP leader makes such crude remark comparing Mayawati to a prostitute. The BSP condemns such remarks and demand immediate arrest of the pervert minded Dayashankar Singh under various sections of the IPC and Atrocities Act,” the protesters said.
The protesters include State In-Charge of BSP Prem Rodekar, General Secretary Jitendra Mhaiskar, Regional Secretary Sagar Dabrase, Uttam Shevde, Nana Deogade, District President Nagorao Jaikar, Gautam Patil, Kavita Landge and other hundreds of party workers.
