Reacting to Janta Ka Reporter’s story on how Uttar Pradesh’s women and child development minister, Swati Singh, had inaugurated a beer bar inn in Lucknow, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday sought explanation from his cabinet colleague.
According to note from the CMO, Yogi has also sought explanation from all the attending officials.
We had reported on Monday how Singh caused embarrassment to her government when she inaugurated a beer bar inn in Lucknow’s Gomti Nagar.
The invitation card described Singh as the chief guest while her husband, also the state vice president of the BJP, was a special guest.
Swati was seen posing for photos with the hosts including flashing a book on beer bar.
Swati, who is also the head of the BJP women’s wing, had won the Assembly poll from Sarojini Nagar seat of Lucknow in this year’s elections.
Swati had chosen to contest the poll after the BJP suspended her husband from the party for calling the BSP supremo Mayawati, a prostitute and person worse than rickshaw puller.
