BJP MLA Sadhana Singh regrets calling Mayawati eunuch

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Sadhana Singh expressed regret on Sunday for calling BSP chief Mayawati worse than a eunuch. In her statement, Singh said she had no intentions of disrespecting anyone and expressed regret for hurting sentiments.  

In the recent speech that I had given, my intentions were not to humiliate anyone, rather I just meant to remind Mayawati of the help extended to her by BJP during the June 2, 1995 guest house incident. I did not mean to cause embarrassment to her, but if my words have hurt anyones feelings, I regret it, Singh said in her statement.

The National Commission for Women has taken suo moto cognisance of Singhs remarks and said a notice would be issued seeking her reply.  Singh, who was addressing a public gathering on Saturday, made the remarks while referring to the 1995 guest house incident, where the BSP chief and several other party leaders were attacked by Samajwadi Party workers.

Speaking on the recent announcement of BSP-SP alliance for the Lok Sabha elections, she claimed that a woman (Mayawati) who underwent a chirharan (disrobe) was now compromising with the perpetrators and went on to label her worse than a eunuch.
