Lucknow: UP cabinet minister Swati Singh has stirred another controversy after pictures of her handing out Rs 100 note along with offerings from Bada Mangal festival in Lucknow.

Bada Mangal, a festival devoted to Lord Hanuman, is celebrated with much fervour in Lucknow on each Tuesday of the Hindu month Jyestha. Thousands of stalls are put up in the state capital to distribute prasad which ranges from poori-sabzi, chhole-chawal, boondi, sharbat and even ice-creams. Singh was found handing out Rs 100 notes with each plate of Prasad in one such stall.

The controversy comes just days after Singh, wife of BJP leader Dayashankar Singh, inaugurated a beer shop in Gomti Nagar in Lucknow. UP CM Yogi Adityanath had sought an explanation from her.
