BJP-RSS govt does not care about the torture on the people of backward castes & tribals. They are more focused on making Babasaheb ‘Ramji’ instead of working for the people of his caste. They are only interested in vote bank politics & nothing else: BSP chief Mayawati. BSP chief reminder gets more currency when state polls early next year, and the sizeable Dalit population is likely to be crucial, play an important consolidation of vote,the poll strategy.
Thousands of Bahujan Samaj Party workers thronged Lucknow’s streets on Thursday, shouting slogans and demanding the arrest of an expelled senior BJP leader who called BSP chief and four-time chief minister Mayawati a “prostitute”.
Angry protesters – mostly Dalits –burnt effigies of former BJP state vice-president Daya Shanker Singh, who made the objectionable remarks.
As calls for his arrest mounted, police raided Singh’s house in Qaiserbagh but couldn’t find him with sources saying he had gone to Balia in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
Senior BSP leader Naseemuddin Siddiqui – who was leading the protests — said the demonstrations would continue until Singh was arrested.
