A shocking video of Sakshi Maharaj asking a young girl to unbutton her pants despite she being reluctant to do so has been doing rounds. Reasons can be plenty as reported by many of the mainstream media, however, to ask a young girl to unbutton in front of all is unbecoming of a member of parliament. To be an MP is a huge responsibility, they have to lead from the front rather than exploiting their position. The MP in question has always made headlines for the wrong reason due to his tirades against minorities and branding of people who have different opinion as anti-national.
The honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji unfortunately so far has not reigned on the loose cannons who have continued to erode his image among the youth and aspiring population of India. It is a great opportunity for the Prime Minister to set the record straight and send out a stern message to all by suspending the MP in question for his loose speeches and the deplorable act he has been part of now.
Alleged Crimes Sakshi Maharaj has committed
Sakshi Maharaj began his political career in 1990s as a member of BJP, elected to Lok Sabha twice from Farrukhabad, later shifted his allegiance to Samajwadi Party, then the UP CHief Minister Kalyan Singh’s Rashtriya Kranti Party and again moved back to BJP later.

The Logical Indian requests the government to act now, act fast against Sakshi Maharaj who has made the country bow in shame because of this act and his behavior inside and outside the parliament. We share the outrage the people of India are venting out on social media and other platforms over this indecent act of this MP. Enough is enough, let’s shun the MPs who lack the decency and principles and let us demand good representatives and behaviour from across party lines.
