Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari was so much in hurry for the Chief Ministerial post that he forgot to follow the traffic rules.
Mumbai, Oct, 25: It seems Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari was so much in hurry for the Chief Ministerial post that he forgot to follow the traffic rules. On Saturday, Gadkari went to meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on his scooty but forgot to wear helmet.

Gadkari who is Transport Minister in Modi's Cabinet drew flak for violating traffic norms in the city.

Targetting Gadkari for driving without a helmet, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh asked he was breaking the law, instead of enforcing it.

"Gadkari violates the law, which he should be enforcing, by riding a scooter without a helmet. Is this the example he and NDA Government wants to set?" Singh said on Twitter.

"Would the Police Commissioner of Nagpur register a case against him or wait for a PIL to be filed against Gadkari?" he further added.

As the stalemate over the Maharashtra Chief Minister continues, the Transport Minister met the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at his residence in Nagpur to discuss the issue.

The meeting comes a day after BJP Maharashtra Chief who is the frontrunner for the coveted post, Devendera Fadnavis met Bhagwat on Friday. Some reports suggest that the RSS has also endorsed Fadanavis candidature for Chief Minister's post.

Gadkari's meeting with Bhagwat comes a day after BJP's front-runner for the post of Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis met the latter. Even though, Gadkari himself has ruled himself out of the CM race, 40 BJP MLAs are backing his candidature for the post.

Gadkari had earlier said that he is happy in Delhi and holding important responsibilities. "I am not in the CM race, I do not want to be the CM. I feel sad when people say this as I have always maintained that I am not willing to go to State," Gadkari was quoted as saying in media reports a few days back.
