BSP Chandigarh unit chief Jannat Jahan has announced that he will reward Rs 50 lakh to anyone one who gets BJP leader Dayashankar Singh's tongue.

Uttar Pradesh BJP vice president Dayashankar Singh had compared BSP supremo Mayawati to a sex worker on 20 July and was removed from all party posts the same day.

His offensive comments included, "If someone comes with Rs 2 crore, she gives him a ticket. If somebody gives her Rs 3 crore, she cancels the tickets of the previous candidate and chooses him. Today her character is worse than that of a prostitute."

The controversial remark created an uproar in political circles with everyone condemning his statement.

Finance Minister Arun jaitley also criticised the politician for making such a statement.

Minutes after making the remark, Dayashankar Singh apologised for his language and said, "I can't even think about Mayawatiji in such a way. She has reached here after a lot of struggle."
