MP's follower vehicles paid no toll tax

By on Sunday, September 17, 2017

Newly appointed state president and the former Union Minister, Mahendra Nath Pandey is under controversy. When his cavalcade reached under toll passage during Agra visit, none vehicles which followed him paid toll tax. As the correspondent asked about the toll tax, Pandey was incensed and then he said, “I’m MP and am toll free.”
A video tweeted by ANI: Pandey can be seen speaking to correspondents, “did you have no other question? When the correspondent asserted repeating their question, he said, “I’m MP, and I’m toll free.”
Mahendra Nath Pandey was state HRD minister in Modi government. Pandey has been recently appointed UP state BJP new president. He has taken charge from UP deputy CM, Keshav Prasad Maurya.
 It is noticeable that Mr Pandey may be free of toll tax payment,  but none vehicles of the cavalcade paid toll tax there , which is clearly violation of implemented rules and regulations; while the Union government is serious about reform the taxation system.
