Bharat Adivasi Party Leader Rajkumar Roat rode a camel for his oath-taking ceremony as a Member of Parliament on Tuesday, PTI reported. Roat, who was backed by the Congress, won from Rajasthan’s Banswara Lok Sabha seat.

 

Roat and his camel were stopped upon his arrival at the parliamentary premises. Expressing his dissatisfaction over the parliament’s expectations of a decorum, “ I will file a complaint,” Rajkumar Roat told the PTI. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who had served three terms as the Prime Minister, had arrived at the parliament on a bullock cart, Roat told PTI.

Rajasthan’s education minister Madan Dilawar's response to Roat’s statement that “if BAP leader does not consider himself a Hindu, then a DNA test should be done to verify whether he is the son of a Hindu” sparked a controversy,  PTI reported.
