In awkwardness to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), its MP from the heated soil of Unnao Sakshi Maharaj inaugurated a ‘night club’ in the Aliganj area of Lucknow on Sunday.
As per reports the nightclub ‘Let’s Meet’ was inaugurated by Sakshi Maharaj and he was wearing his usual saffron robes at around 12 noon yesterday.
The incident has sparked a row as Sakshi Maharaj represents Unnao in Lok Sabha, the place which has been in headlines over the alleged rape of a woman by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and death of her father in judicial custody.
This is not the first time Sakshi Maharaj has made the headlines in media for jumping into a hullabaloo. Months ago, he had said that “vulgar behaviour” by girls and boys at public places are accountable for rapes.
"When these couples ride a motorcycle, they hug each other as if they both will eat each other. Similarly, couples can be seen behaving in a vulgar fashion in cars, parks and other places," he further said.
The BJP had found itself in a similar state of affairs earlier as well as one of its MLA and cabinet minister Swati Singh inaugurated a beer bar in the capital city last year.
