MATHURA: The questions by the media over the issue of toll fee irked the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit President Mahendra Nath Pandey.
He was talking to media after garlanding the statue of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay at Deendyal Dham.
Pandey is a BJP MP from Chandauli Lok Sabha constituency. He has replaced Keshav Prasad Maurya as UP BJP chief who guided the party to victory in the state assembly elections.
When the media asked him that he is the State BJP President and so why did he not pay any toll tax while crossing the toll tax plaza when his convoy was coming from Firozabad, to which he reverted “Any other question?”
He further stated, “I am the member of the parliament and I am toll-free, any other question?”
And to which the media said that he is a Parliamentarian but the people who were travelling in his convoy are not Members of the Parliament, Pandey angrily replied, “I am present at the Deendayal Dham; is there any other question, then ask?”
When the media further sought answer to this question only, then he said, “If you have any other question, then ask.”
Earlier in August, Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was caught in the camera passing the toll plaza without paying the toll tax with a convoy of 175 cars in Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh.
