Dayashankar's wife, Swati hospitalised after complaining of uneasiness

Lucknow: Expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh's wife Swati Singh, who has taken up cudgels against BSP leaders for their derogatory comments against her daughter and family members, was on Tuesday admitted to a city hospital after she complained of uneasiness.

"Swati was admitted to a private hospital on Tuesday morning with high fever, problem of chest congestion and diarrhoea. Her condition is improving," a family member said.

Following his derogatory comments against Mayawati, BJP expelled Dayashankar on 20 July. An FIR was also registered against him under the SC/ST Act.

Later, BSP held a huge protest and allegedly raised slogans against the expelled BJP leader's family. An FIR was filed against Mayawati along with BSP general secretary Naseemuddin Siddiqui and others on Friday on a complaint of Singh's mother Tetra Devi on 22 July.

She had alleged that Mayawati used "abusive language" against the women members of the family and BSP leaders raised "derogatory" slogans during which Singh's 12-year-old daughter was also dragged into the row.

Swati met Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik and lodged a complaint over the foul language allegedly used by BSP workers against the women members of her family.

Swati, who got married to Dayashankar in 2001 and had remained out of the political limelight so far, aggressively protested against BSP leaders after this incident saying she was "not defending her husband but fighting for her daughter".

A commerce graduate and an MBA from a reputed college in Allahabad, Swati is a qualified lawyer with a post-graduate degree in law. The couple has two children.

Police had yesterday secured non-bailable warrant against Dayashankar from the court of a special judge.
