Sakshi Maharaj draws flak for launching ‘nightclub’
BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has courted 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 pictures of him at the venue drew criticism and ridicule, the MP claimed that he was “tricked” into attending the event. The owner of the establishment claimed that it was not a nightclub but a restaurant. He claimed that there was “typographical error” in the invitation card.
