Naik, who was here to attend a function, told reporters that he has received a call from Dayashanker's daughter seeking an appointment with him. "I have called her on Monday at Raj Bhawan to listen to her grievances," he said.

The BJP, which held demonstrations across the state demanding arrest of BSP leader Naseemuddin Siddiqui over derogatory remarks made against women members of Singh's family, also handed over a memorandum in this regard.

BJP district president Basant Tyagi, along with his party worker, handed over the memorandum to Naik, after the Governor unveiled a statue of founder of a Loni-based inter college and social activist RC Dixit.
