It’s not often that an MP makes an impression in Parliament before even parking their vehicle, but Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan bucked the trend on Tuesday after arriving on an orange Harley-Davidson motorcycle to make a statement on Women’s Day.
The 42-year-old Lok Sabha who represents Supaul in Bihar rode around the Parliament complex before entering the House.
A mother of two, Ranjeet said she does not allow even her husband Rajesh Ranjan, also a Lok Sabha member from Bihar, to touch the bike, which she had purchased from her own earnings.
However, he does get a chance to sit pillion as she rides the American classic.
Prices of Harley-Davidson motorcycles start from around Rs 4.5 lakh.
Ranjeet said she can come to Parliament on motorcycle and cycle daily. “My life has been such that my parents have never objected to whatever I have done so far,” she said.
She later also participated in the discussion on Women’s Day in Lok Sabha.
