Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Ujjain BJP MP Anil Firojiya, accompanied by Madhya Pradesh higher education minister Mohan Yadav, on Tuesday paid a fine of Rs 250 after realising that he was not wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle.
Earlier in the day, Yadav and Firojiya visited a local agriculture market on a motorcycle appealing to people to follow COVID-19 protocols during the unlocking of the "corona curfew".
"However, we realised that while doing so we have flouted traffic norms by not wearing a helmet following which we decided to pay the fine," Firojiya told PTI.
Ujjain traffic police station incharge Pavan Kumar Bangdi said the local MP realised his mistake of not wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle.
"The MP along with the minister came to the traffic police's office on his own and paid the fine of Rs 250," he said.
