New Delhi, July 12:
The BJP Thursday extended the suspension of its Uttrakhand MLA Pranav Singh Champion for an indefinite period, a day after a video showing him dancing with guns went viral on social media, causing embarrassment to the party.
But as per a TOI report, the BJP legislator recently spent Rs 5.51 lakh to get VIP number ‘0001’ for his vehicle.
“Many others have applied for these VIP numbers since the process became online in June 2017 but this is the highest amount paid for a VIP number in the past two years,” additional regional transport officer (ARTO) Arvind Pandey was quoted as saying.
Pandey added that the earlier a transgender leader Rajni Rawat had the highest bid was Rs 5.25 lakh
The BJP legislator had made the highest bid for 0001 number for the UK 07 DN series. “The 0001 number of each series is the most sought after number followed by 0007,” Pandey was quoted as saying.
