BJP has expelled Dayashankar Singh, who made derogatory remarks against BSP chief Mayawati, from the party.

This came after BSP on Wednesday filed a police complaint demanding an FIR against BJP leader Dayashankar Singh be filed under the SC/ST Act for his derogatory comments against its president Mayawati.

BSP leaders, according to PTI, led by Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council Naseemuddin Siddiqui, submitted the complaint at the Hazratganj Kotwali.

The complaint, which was lodged by national secretary of BSP Mewalal Gautam, alleged that Singh’s remarks in Mau earlier in the day have hurt the feelings of BSP workers and the Dalit community across the country and were aimed at provoking them.

Referring to Singh’s comments being telecast on national TV channels, he said they were so derogatory that they could not be mentioned in the complaint and so a CD of the same was being submitted.
