New Delhi: After Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ram Prasad Sharma came to Parliament riding on a horse, while another party leader Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday turned up a cycle in wake of the Delhi Government’s odd-even rule, and advised other fellow parliamentarians to follow the same.
“I am following the odd-even rule. My car is even numbered, and since today is odd day I have come like this…I am not saying that this should become a tradition, but those who are interested can come like this,” Tiwari told ANI.
“I have come as i was left with no other option. I use cycle sometimes, and Parliamentarians should use it,” he added. Ram Prasad Sharma today came to the Parliament on a horse in protest against the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government’s Odd-Even rule.
BJP MP Paresh Rawal had earlier on Monday violated the Odd-Even rule by reaching the Parliament in his even-numbered car following which he apologised to the Delhi Chief Minister.
Rawal later tweeted a challan copy, saying he has paid a fine for violating the Odd-Even rule. The odd-even rules, whose violation attract a penalty of Rs 2,000 under provisions of Motor Vehicles Act, are applicable between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. except on Sundays.
