New Delhi:

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Thursday said that the action taken by BJP against Dayashankar Singh for his derogatory remarks were not enough. Hundreds of BSP workers took to the streets of Lucknow to protest against Dayashankar Singh and demanded his arrest.

"To the backward classes, I am like a Devi (Goddess). They are angry. If the BJP had filed an FIR against Dayashankar they may have been able to win me over, but removing him from the party is just a formality," said Mayawati in Delhi.

In a swift action following outrage over Dayashankar Singh’s controversial remarks, the BJP had on Wednesday expelled him.

The BSP has filed a case against Dayashankar Singh under laws including atrocities against Scheduled Castes and Tribes, insulting the modesty of a woman and promoting enmity. The police is chasing him and has also questioned his brother about his whereabouts. 

Many opposition parties including Congress are also demanding Dayashankar’s arrest. "If Mayawatiji is attacked again, we will stand with her again. But if she wants to use this in the elections then she should forget about it," BJP leader Uma Bharti said.
