BJP president Rajnath Singh on Monday had a miraculous escape when the car he was travelling in was hit by a tractor in Ghaziabad while heading towards Muradnagar to attend an election function.
Singh, the saffron party's candidate from Ghaziabad Lok Sabha constituency, was on his way to attend a function in a school in Muradnagar, when the incident took place near Duhai around 1:30 pm.
The speeding tractor hit the car when it took a u-turn, police said, adding the front side of Singh's vehicle was damaged.
The BJP president, who was sitting on the rear seat, was not injured in the incident.
The BJP chief proceeded to his destination in another car. The driver of the tractor was detained but later let-off after Singh's intervention, the BJP chief's office said in New Delhi.
