New Delhi, Sep 28, 2016: The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader Dayashankar Singh, who was expelled for six years from the party for his derogatory remarks on BSP supremo Mayawati, is now set for his comeback to the party, reports said.
The report added that Singh’s wife, Swati, is also set for her political debut in the party’s women’s wing. She taken on BSP leaders for using abusive language against her after allegations against her husband came to light.
However, both husband and wife are expected to participate in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections which are due next year.
Singh was expelled after he made derogatory remarks against BSP supremo Mayawati in the monsoon session of Parliament. He had likened her to a prostitute, drawing ire from political leaders.
“Since BSP has not taken action against its senior leader Naeemuddin Siddiqui and his supporters, who used abusive language against the women of Dayashankar’s family, the party is considering his return,” a senior BJP leader said.
He further asserted that the particular move has already been discussed by the other members of the party and might take place in October.
While speaking to media, Dayashankar said that he has been punished more as per the crime he committed and does expect to return as he had apologised for his mistake.
In a statement, Singh said, “I committed a mistake and tendered my apology to Behenji immediately. I should not be hanged for a mistake for which I have expressed my regret.”
