Uttar Pradesh’s IPS officer Amitabh Thakur causes controversy with Facebook post ‘justifying’ Dayashankar’s prostitute remarks


Uttar Pradesh’s IPS officer, Amithabh Thakur, has caused another controversy by implying that the expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh’s prostitute’s remarks for the BSP supremo were justified.

In his Facebook post on Thursday, the controversial IPS officer said, “kayi log kayi baar galat dhang se sahi baat kah dete hain to hangama mach jaata hai (Sometime some people utter right thing in wrong way, which causes furore.)

He didn’t stop here as his next Facebook post expressed solidarity for the family of the former BJP leader.

He wrote, ” jis prakar aaj Dayashankar ke parivaar waalon keliye khuleaam apshabd bole gaye usse ek baar phir lagaa ki taaqat ho to sab jaayez hai (The way expletives were used for Dayashankar’s family today, it appeared as if everything is legitimate if you have the power.)”

His Facebook post has general considerable interest with nearly 500 people liking his comments.

The post has, however, not gone down well with many of his followers on the social media platform. Many felt that his tacit support to what was widely deemed an extremely offensive and misogynistic remarks will push his fans away from him.

Dayashankar, BJP’s vice president, was expelled from the party after he told media that Mayawati was worse than a prostitute.

Thakur was suspended for violating ‘service rules’ days after he had released the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s threatening call to him.

In an audio tape released by Thakur, the former UP chief minister was heard threatening him with dire consequences if ‘he didn’t mend his ways.”

His suspension was quashed by the BJP-led central government prompting the UP government to reinstate him 10 months later.

Here are some of the comments on Thakur’s Facebook post justifying Dayashankar’s prostitute comments;

Asrar Khan: Amitabh ji, such comments will push you away from your well wishers

Govind Lal :  If such officers too indulge in dirty politics then God save the country and its people

Devanshu Gautam : Dear sir, so you’ve thrown your weight behind people from your caste. And you guys talk about breaking the caste system.

Rama Shankar : We didn’t expect such words from you.
