Minister switches to 2 wheels after being stopped with red beacon car
Jayani borrowed the motorcycle of a forest guard standing nearby, said a source. Joram Beda, returning officer of Moga bypoll and Additional Deputy Commissioner, said: “His vehicle was stopped because as per the compendium of instructions defined by Election Commission of India, when the code of conduct has been imposed in an area, a minister cannot bring a red beacon vehicle to a government function.”
Jayani, when contacted, said: “I was not aware of this rule. After officials told me about this, I entered the venue in a motorcycle, leaving my beacon car outside. I faced no inconvenience in travelling on a motorcycle and even directed my staff to pay the bill of rest house and food from my personal funds to abide by the EC rules.”
