Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma had to take a cycle rickshaw on Thursday to visit Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav after he was stuck in a traffic.
Akhilesh shared the information on Twitter, saying the visitors won’t have to face traffic jams when Lucknow Metro would start functioning. “A traffic jam forced Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma to visit us in a cycle rickshaw. Lucknow Metro will help solve the traffic jams in city,” the CM tweeted.

Sharma was in Lucknow on Thursday to receive UP’s top state award Yash Bharti.
Lucknow Metro is Yadav’s pet project and he expects it to start running before the start of Assembly election in the state early next year.
While the UP CM and Yadav had a good time, the rickshaw puller Maniram, who took Sharma to CM’s residence at 5 Kalidas Marg, also had a good moment and some fame as the CM shared his photo on Twitter.
