New Delhi, July 20 (ANI): Expressing her ire at Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vice-president Dayashankar Singh for comparing her to a prostitute, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Wednesday said it reflected frustration on the part of the BJP.

"These kind of derogatory statements show that BJP is frustrated with the growing public support for BSP," Mayawati told ANI outside Parliament.

Singh had yesterday passed a shocking remark while trying to highlight the rampant corruption in the allocation of tickets in the BSP.

"Mayawati does not have any standing in UP. She has shattered the dreams of Kanshi Ram. Look at the way Mayawati is selling tickets, even a prostitute keeps her commitment. But look at a leader like Mayawati who sells a ticket for Rs. 1 crore, then after some time if another is willing to pay Rs. 2 crore, she will give the ticket to him. Mayawati has become worse than a prostitute," he said in Mhow.

Mayawati, earlier in the day, hit out at Centre over atrocities on the Dalits community in Una district in Gujarat. She criticised BJP for playing politics over the issue.

Both houses witnessed an uproar over the issue earlier. (ANI)
