The BJP MP filed his nomination papers on Monday and it is learnt that more than 100 vehicles were present in his cavalcade when he went to file his nomination papers from his office. Sakshi Maharaj was asked to show the pass of the vehicles present in his cavalcade but he was able to show the passes of only 13 vehicles. As a result of this, the case was registered against the Unnao MP for allegedly violating the model code of conduct.

Singh had filed his nomination in the presence of former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Jabalpur.
