Controversy Erupts Over BJP Leader’s Offensive Remarks On Mayawati

BJP Leader's Offensive Remarks On Mayawati Snowballs Into Massive Controversy; Congress, Akhilesh Yadav React: Live Updates

Sadhana Singh said Mayawati “was a blot on womankind”.

New Delhi: 

Sadhana Singh, a lawmaker of the ruling BJP in Uttar Pradesh, has come under severe criticism from the opposition for offensive comments against Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati. The BSP leader, she said, “was a blot on womankind”. Ms Singh accused her of “selling her dignity for power” by joining hands with the Samajwadi Party.

“She (Mayawati) has no self-respect… she was almost molested earlier and yet… in history, when Draupadi was molested, she took a vow to seek revenge… but this woman, she lost everything, but still sold her dignity for the sake of power. We strongly condemn Mayawati ji. She is a blot on womankind. A woman who gulped insults for comfort and power … is a blot on womankind,” Sadhana Singh said referring to the infamous episode when the BSP chief was assaulted by Samajwadi Party workers at a guest house in Lucknow in 1995 that triggered decades of animosity. 

Mayawati’s party said that the language of the BJP leader reflected the party’s “frustration with the SP-BSP alliance”. “They have lost their mental balance in fear of losing the election in Uttar Pradesh,” said the BSP’s Satish Chandra Mishra.

Last week, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati announced that they are contesting the Lok Sabha election together in the state. The BSP chief said that she had decided to put the past behind her “for the sake of the nation”, seemingly aimed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had, at a rally, taunted her for “forgetting” that episode while allying with the Samajwadi Party.
