"I was told by former UP state president Rajjan Singh that it was a restaurant owned by his son-in-law. I agreed," said Sakshi Maharaj who 'realised' it later that it was actually a bar and a nightclub.

Sakshi Maharaj has often grabbed headlines for his controversial remarks. The incident comes amid an uproar over an alleged rape of a woman by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and death of her father in judicial custody in Unnao.

However, this isn't the first time, BJP had found itself in a similar situation earlier as well after one of its MLA and cabinet minister Swati Singh inaugurated a beer bar in the capital city in 2017.
