Baal paka hua hai aur rangeen karwake ke aaj bhi apne aap ko Mayawati ji jawan saabit karti hain, 60 varsh umar ho gayi lekin sab baal kaale hain (Mayawati gets facial done every day, she can't cast aspersions on our leaders. She colours her hair and tries to prove herself young. She has turned 60 but her hair is all black)," Singh said.

Singh's remark comes a day after Union Minister Mahesh Sharma made objectionable remarks against Congress President Rahul Gandhi, his sister and General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
"I was sitting in Parliament one row being the PM. The way he (Rahul Gandhi) winked, even I was floored. Now the Pappu says he wants to become a PM. So now Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav and now Pappu’s Pappi have also come. Wasn’t Priyanka a daughter of the nation before? Wasn’t she Congress’ daughter," Sharma was seen saying in a video being circulated on Monday.
