Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India] May 15 (ANI): On the opening day of the 17th Uttar Pradesh Assembly session on Monday, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Jawahar L. Rajpoot arrived in a bullock cart. The cart owner claimed that the MLA denied to pay rent promised to him. Dressed in a crisp white kurta, the Garautha lawmaker waved at the waiting media as he made his entry into the assembly complex. This is not the first time that a lawmakers' choice of transport gained attention. Last year, Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan arrived in Parliament on an orange Harley-Davidson motorcycle to make a statement on Women's Day. A year before, BJP MP Arjun Ram Meghwal rode a bicycle to attend the Budget Session. Meghwal said he was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal to reduce carbon emission and chose to cycle at least for one day every week. (ANI)
