The BJP has already sacked Singh from all party posts after his derogatory remarks against Mayawati. Interestingly, Singh made the derogatory remarks on the very day he was appointed as the vice-president of state unit.

Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said Dayashankar Singh gave an objectionable statement and hence is removed from party for 6 years.

Meanwhile, the workers held a protest in front of the Ambedkar statue in Hazratganj area. BSP workers from different districts of UP have reached the state capital to lodge a strong protest.
