Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), July 21 (ANI): Following the furore over Dayashankar Singh's derogatory slur on former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLA Usha Chaudhary on Thursday called the suspended Uttar Pradesh BJP vice-president an 'illegitimate child'.

"Since the BJP came to power, the Dalits have been tortured. The BJP Government protected those who should be put behind the bars. What Dayashankar Singh said about Mayawati ji. I think its Dayashankar's family which is like that. There is something wrong with Dayashankar Singh's DNA, I think he is an illegitimate child.that is why he made such a remark," she said.

Chaudhary dubbed Dayashankar's remark an insult to the nation and Father of Indian Constitution Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

"The BJP Government is anti-Ambedkar. We will show them the way out in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls and 2018 Gujarat Assembly polls. The place for the culprits is jail," she added.

The Uttar Pradesh Police earlier today said that the suspended BJP state vice-president left for an 'unknown location' when the cops arrived at his residence to arrest him.

Balia Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Jha said that their efforts to locate and nab Singh would continue.

The BSP workers are staging protests across several cities of the nation over Singh's derogatory remark and demanded his arrest.

The BJP yesterday expelled Dayashankar from the party for six years. (ANI)
