BSP workers protest derogatory remarks
The BSP workers hit the streets in large numbers on Thursday to protest use of derogatory words for party supremo Mayawati by senior BJP leader Daya Shankar Singh.

The BSP leaders, who had declared that their protest would continue until Singh was arrested, called off their 'dharna' (sit-in) after the police officials promised them that the culprit would be arrested within 36 hours. Senior BSP leader Naseemuddin Siddique said that the party would again hit the street if Singh was not arrested as promised. BSP workers and leaders from different parts of the state had started gathering near the statue of Dr BR Ambedkar at Hazratganj since early morning after Mayawati's call for the demonstration. The protesters included a large number of women too. The authorities had blocked the road that lead to Rajbhavan and the chief minister's residence as a precautionary measure.
