Dayashankar Singh who was expelled from the Bharatiya Janata Party, was granted bail and was released on Sunday, and said that BJP is in his ‘haemoglobin’. “BJP might have expelled me by I am not away from it,” he said. Dayashankar was expelled from BJP after protests by opposition parties after he called BSP supremo Mayawati ‘like a prostitute’. He had went missing but was later arrested in a joint operation by UP special task force and Bihar police in Buxar, on July 19. He was booked under IPC sections 504, 509, 153A and the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Singh’s statement was protested against by many parties and came as a shock for the BJP before the assembly elections, following which he was expelled.
His statement was- “Ek vaishya se bhi badtar charitra ki aaj Mayawatiji ho gayi hain. Isi liye Kanshi Ram ke banaye karyakarta unka saath chhod kar ja rahe hain aur BSP samapt ho rai hai… Mayawatiji kisi ko 1 crore mein ticket deti hain. Koi 2 crore dene wala milta hai toh usey ticket de deti hain, aur shaam ko koi 3 crore dene ko taiyyar hota hai toh usey de deti hain. After his release from the jail, Dayashankar Singh said that his wife and daughter are not well and that he will go to Lucknow to be with his family. “When asked whether his wife would join the party of even contest the elections he said,”Swati Singh has no interest in politics, she does not want to come in. If ever Swati Singh fights elections, she will fight against Mayawati independently.
