BJP MLA Surendra Narayan Singh took political rhetoric to a new low on Tuesday (19 March 2019) by saying that former UP chief minister Mayawari is a hedonist who ‘takes facial everyday’ and ‘colours her hair” to look young.
“She takes facial every day. The person who herself takes facial daily is telling our leader that he is ‘shaukeen’. Wearing clothes is not being ‘shaukeen’. Colouring hair at the age of 60 to look young is ‘shaukeen’. Her hair have turned grey but she colours it black,” said Singh who represents the Rohaniya constituency of Uttar Pradesh.

The MLA’s comment came following Mayawati’s tweet in which she targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that he lives a ‘royal’ life.
“The person who lives life in a royal manner, against the principle of simple living and high thinking, advertised himself as a ‘chaiwallah’ in the last Lok Sabha elections for the sake of the vote. Now he is declaring himself as chowkidar with pomp and show for votes in the elections. The country is really changing?” Mayawati tweeted earlier in the day.
The two leaders engaged in a bitter war of words over PM Modi calling himself a chowkidar (guard) time and again in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections while also adding chowkidar to his Twitter name. Also Read: Modi Is Namard: This Video Of Congress Leader Will Boil Your Blood
‘MainBhiChowkidar’ campaign was launched on Saturday to further the narrative of the Prime Minister on graft. A day after the launch of the campaign, Prime Minister Modi and top BJP leaders such as Amit Shah, Piyush Goyal, Dharmendra Pradhan and JP Nadda added the prefix ‘chowkidar’ to their Twitter handles.
Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati’s alliance partner for the national election, hit out at the BJP leader.
“Mayawatiji has spent her life fighting the privileged who want to keep us in our place and submit to their will. They want women to follow what they prescribe. The BJP represents the past and wants us to return to it. We fight for a better future. It’s time for #MahaParivartan,” Akhilesh Yadav tweeted.
Surendra Narayan Singh is prone to outrageous comments and seems to have learnt little from the wide condemnation of his previous gaffes.
Last year, he had said that “even Lord Ram cannot prevent rapes”. Before that, he had commented, while supporting rape-accused BJP colleague Kuldip Sengar in the Unnao case, that “no one can rape a mother of three children”.
