Sakshi Maharaj draws flak for inaugurating nightclub in UP
Unnao: BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has courted a fresh controversy by inaugurating a 'nightclub' in Lucknow at a time when his constituency has been rocked by a case of rape in which a party MLA has been arrested.
As the pictures of the saffron-clad Hindutva leader at the venue in the posh Aliganj locality of the state capital last night drew criticism and ridicule, his aide claimed that he had been tricked into attending the event, while the organiser claimed that it was not a nightclub but a restaurant where no liquor would be served.
Photographs showing the 62-year-old Unnao MP accepting an idol of Lord Ganesh were put on the social media while TV channels too aired visuals of the event. Though Sakshi Maharaj could not be reached for comments.
