“What’s the issue? Who's order is it. Send me to jail if you have to do something. This is my vehicle and you cannot seize it,” says Choubey to an official who in turn informs him that EC’s order is to confiscate the vehicles and not the individual and they will look into it.
Later speaking to media persons, SDM KK Upadhyay said that action will be taken as per the provisions of law.
“There was no permission for vehicles but it has been reported that there were many vehicles parked here at Zila Maidan. There were about 30-40 vehicles in the convoy and action will be taken over it,” he said.
“The case will be registered for every vehicle that was in the convoy,’ added Upadhyay.
Choubey is the sitting MP from Buxar and has been once again fielded by BJP from the same constituency for the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
