Uttar Pradesh unit of Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday declared a state wide protest 'Beti ke samman mein,BJP maidan mein' against Bahujan Samaj Party.
The BJP said that the protest will be in favour of Dayashankar's daughter.
An FIR was filed on Friday against Mayawati and some of her party leaders by police on a complaint by the family of expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh whose whereabouts were not known after he kicked up a controversy by questioning the character of the BSP supremo.
Singh's mother Tetra Devi filed the complaint alleging Mayawati used "abusive language" against the women members of his family and that the BSP leaders raised "derogatory" slogans at the party protest in Lucknow yesterday in which his 12-year-old daughter was also dragged into the row.
As raids were conducted by police overnight to trace Singh, the BJP sought to turn the tables on Mayawati, asking her to tender an apology and take action against her party leader Naseemuddin Siddiqui for his abusive language targeting Singh's daughter.
On the basis of Tetra Devi's complaint, an FIR was lodged against Mayawati, state unit president Ram Achal Rajbhar, national general secretary Naseemuddin and national secretary Mevalal besides unknown workers, police said.
The FIR has been registered under sections 120B (punishment for criminal conspiracy), 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups), 504 (intentional insult with intent to breach peace), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act to insult modesty of woman) of the IPC, police said.
"We will now demand the arrest of BSP leaders who had crossed all limits in abusing and degrading women members of the family", Dayashankar's family said.
Earlier in the day, Tetra Devi met the Hazratganj Police and submitted the complaint that she, her daughter, daughter-in-law and grand daughter were abused by BSP men who allegedly raised derogatory slogans during the protest.
"There was an attempt to instigate violence and riot during the protest by highlighting differences on caste lines", she alleged in the complaint, adding that slogans at the protest amounted to outraging the modesty of a woman.
She said after the sloganeering during the protest, Singh's 12-year-old daughter was in shock.
Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Jha said that raids were conducted last night but there was no clue about Singh's whereabouts.
The SP said that Singh's brother Dharmendra was detained for questioning, but failed to give any information.
"All he said was that Singh left for Gorakhpur on July 21 and there was no contact since then," he said.
"I want the FIR because I'm a woman, my daughter is a woman and my mother-in-law is a woman. She(Mayawati) has used such abusive language," she said, adding, "Their protest was
against my husband's statement but they were more abusive in their protest asking lewdly to 'present your daughter and wife'".
Mayawati on her part said Dayashankar's mother, daughter or wife should have condemned what he said but they maintained silence.
"When our party workers spoke against them then they realised how it feels to be abused. So that's why some people said, this was to make Dayashankar realise the pain. So that in future he should not be abusive to anyone's daughter or wife."
