New Delhi: Union Minister Babul Supriyo on Friday morning escaped unhurt as his car was hit from behind by a passenger bus on a flyover in Delhi while he was on his way to Indira Gandhi International Airport.
Soon after the accident, that happened around 5 AM, the minister took to Twitter and posted that he is safe. “My car got hit frm behind by a Huge (unidentified) Volvo Bus, on the Highway Flyover on way to the Airport (sic).”
Supriyo, the Union minister of heavy industries and public enterprises, also gave an insight into what actually happened. “Driver somehow managed to steer off the flyover railing or else we wud have been thrown off,” he tweeted. “He was/is so rattled that i has to take the wheel after that. Good Luck ruled (sic),” he posted.
The BJP minister was in news earlier in September when he stirred a controversy after threatening to “break a man’s leg” during a public event in West Bengal’s Asansol city.
The controversial statement came when Supriyo reportedly lost his cool after a man distracted the former with his continuous movement. The Union Minister snapped back at the man, saying, “What happened to you? Any problem? I can break one of your legs and can give you a crutch.”
Supriyo then ordered his security personnel to break the man’s leg and hand him a crutch if he dared to move further from his place.
