Despite Flak, BJP MLA Sadhna Singh Refuses to Apologise for ‘Eunuch’ Shocker Against Mayawati

New Delhi: After stirring a controversy over her “worse than eunuch” remark against Mayawati, Uttar Pradesh MLA Sadhana Singh on Sunday said that she does not regret her statement as the BSP chief had “forgotten her disrespect for political gains”.

The Mughalsarai MLA, while addressing a gathering, said that a woman who underwent a ‘chirharan’ (disrobe) is now compromising with the perpetrators, “she is worse than an eunuch”.

The legislator’s shocking statement came after SP and BSP announced an alliance for the Lok Sabha polls this year. The coming together of the two regional giants, after decades of bitterness, was considered a breakthrough, especially after the infamous 1995 ‘guest house incident‘.

Addressing a press conference, Mayawati had on January 12 said that she was ready to forgive and forget the ‘guest house incident’ during which she was held hostage by SP workers at the state guest house. The statement drew a sharp reaction from the Bharatiya Janata Party MLA, who went ahead to call the former UP CM “a person who is neither a man nor a woman”.
When CNN-News18 contacted Singh over her remark, she said, “I don’t regret my statement. A woman who is unable to protect her own dignity is a blot on womankind. She forgot her disrespect for political gains. It’s not only about her but the entire womenfolk, which has been let down.”

Appalled by the statement, BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra slammed Singh as “mentally ill”.

“This shows BJP’s level, and their disappointment and frustration with the SP-BSP alliance. They do not have strength to win even a single seat in Uttar Pradesh. The level of language shows their mental illness. Such people should be admitted to the mental hospital in Agra or Bareilly. They have lost their mental balance in fear of losing the election in Uttar Pradesh,” he said.

It is yet to be seen if BSP’s foe-turned-ally SP condemns the statement as former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav had sent out a message after their alliance that Mayawati’s disrespect will be his disrespect. “From today onwards, all the SP workers should know that the disrespect of Mayawati ji will be my disrespect,” he had said.
