Mumbai traffic can be a nightmare, but what can be described as a shocking lack of responsibility form an elected Member of Parliament. Senior NCP leader Supriya Sule was caught riding on bullet bike without a helmet in Mumbai. Even the person who was riding bike was also not wearing helmet.

Sule, after wrapping up an election meeting in Malad was on her way to Thane in a four-wheeler for another poll event. However, due to heavy rush of Vehicles, Supriya Sule took a bike ride. However, it cannot be ignored that Sule was not wearing a helmet, which is a violation in Mumbai as per the directions given by Mumbai police in April last year. The violations are liable to pay fine of Rs 100.

According to NCP sources, as Sule realised that it was difficult for her to reach the venue in Thane at the scheduled time she preferred to sit on a motorcycle which the party worker was riding. Accompanied by other party workers, Sule reached the election rally at Khopat in Thane around 9.30pm and addressed the crowd before it wrapped up at 10pm.

Well one may that Sule must have forgotten about the rule amidst the hurry of reaching at the venue. However it definitely sends wrong messages to the youngster who may indulge in rush driving. Supriya Sule on her Twitter account uploaded few videos of her bike ride. Sule’s video of riding pillion went viral on the social media.
