Chandigarh, Jul 21: Demanding the arrest of former Uttar Pradesh BJP vice-president Dayashankar Singh for making derogatory remarks against her party chief Mayawati, a local BSP leader Jannat Jahan-Ul-Haq today offered Rs 50 lakh to anyone who brings his tongue.

As the BSP workers held a protest here today against Singh's remarks, Jannat Jahan, a party leader from here, courted controversy with her outburst.

"The derogatory language used by Dayashankar against our party chief shows the BJP's true character. They do not know how to respect women. They are anti-Dalits, anti-farmers too and now anti-women also. Such a person (Dayashankar) should be sent to jail immediately," she said during the protest.

She then added "Whosoever gets me his (Dayashankar's) tongue, Jannat Jahan will give him Rs 50 lakh."

The BSP leader's remarks evoked sharp reaction from BJP, which said the party had already acted against Dayashankar and the matter should not be politicised.

"Our party has already acted in the matter. My senior leader Arun Jaitley has expressed regret over the matter. What else do they want? Now, Jannat Jahan is making such remarks, a wrong cannot be countered by another wrong to make it right," Chandigarh BJP President Sanjay Tandon said.

However, the BSP leader stuck to her remarks and told reporters after the protest that she stands by what she has said.

"I stand by my statement. Mayawati ji is an iron lady of BSP, using such derogatory remarks cannot be tolerated," she said.

When asked what is the difference between her and the BJP leader who attacked Mayawati, Jahan said "It should be tit-for-tat in life. It should be tit-for-tat for me".
