Sharply reacting to the Samajwadi Party  chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s remarks questioning the marital status of the BSP chief, Mayawati, the latter asked the family members of Mulayam to take him to mental asylum while also threatening that his remarks could trigger caste riots in the State.

At a time when the political discourse in the Parliament election 2014 is already dangerously touching a new low, Mulayam Singh Yadav’s  highly personal attack on his bete noire  Mayawati  further vitiated atmosphere in the State and it was this reason Mayawati hurriedly called a press conference late on Thursday evening and castigated him.

The SP chief, addressing a rally in Faizabad on Thursday, said that he was not sure whether he  should call Mayawati Mrs, Miss or Behan which was enough to provoke the BSP supremo who retaliated by saying that Yadav should be taken to  mental asylum otherwise one day he would call his grandsons and granddaughters as Mrs and Mr and not the brothers and sisters. She said that   the BSP supporters and the general SC members were outraged over Yadav’s remarks and she was flooded with complaints .She has appealed them to maintain cool. While appealing the Election Commission to take strict action against Mulayam, she said that her supporters would defeat the SP candidates in the remaining seats to give a befitting reply.

In the last one week this is the second time when SCs have been targeted in the State. Earlier a similar remark was made by self-styled saint Ram Dev who had commented that the Congress vice president, Rahul Gandhi, visits the houses of Dalits  for honeymooning with them. The EC had censured him.
