Mayawati Row: Parties Echo Similar Sentiments Against Daya Shankar Singh’s Remarks

After the Bharatiya Janata party sacked the Uttar Pradesh state vice-president Daya Shankar Singh, almost all major political parties echoed similar sentiments condemning statements against the ruling party. Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said the political view conflicts may exist but such a comment is not acceptable. Demanding arrest of Daya Shankar Singh, Trinamool Congress leader Derek’O Brian said that this issue will be discussed in the Rajya Sabha at 2pm today. Condemning Daya Shankar’s statement, Information and Broadcast Minister Venkaiah Naidu said the protests by other opposition parties are merely a demonstration of jealousy from BJP’s progress. On Tuesday Daya Shankar had targeted BSP chief Mayawati by saying that she sells party tickets at higher rates and compared her to a prostitute.
