Expelled BJP Leader Dayashankar Singh's Wife Made Chief Of UP BJP's Women's Wing

Dayashankar Singh was expelled by the party after his comments on Mayawati caused nationwide controversy


Lucknow:  In a surprise move, Uttar Pradesh BJP today made Swati Singh, the wife of expelled party leader Dayashankar Singh, the president of the party's women's wing.

Swati, who had led a campaign against Mayawati and other leaders of her party for the "unsavoury" slogans against her minor daughter during a BSP dharna in Lucknow, was made the president of the state BJP Mahila Morcha.

According to a party release, besides Swati, Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya appointed MP Kaushal Kishore the president of the party's SC Morcha and MP Chotey Lal Kharwar the head of the party's ST Morcha.

Swati Singh of Ballia had come to prominence after she led a campaign demanding FIRs against BSP leaders who raised slogans targeting her minor daughter during a protest staged by the party against her husband's "derogatory" comments against Mayawati.

Her husband and former Uttar Pradesh BJP vice-president Dayashankar Singh was expelled by the party after his comments on the BSP supremo caused a nationwide controversy.
