The 42-year-old Lok Sabha member belonging to Congress from Bihar's Supaul, wearing a blue attire with helmet and sunglasses, rode around the Parliament complex before entering the House to take part in day's proceedings.

A mother of two, Ranjeet said she does not allow even her husband Rajesh Ranjan, also a Lok Sabha member from Bihar, to touch the bike, which she had purchased from her own earnings.

However, he does get a chance to sit pillion as she rides the American monster. Prices of Harley-Davidson motorcycles start from around Rs 4.5 lakh.

Ranjeet said she can come to Parliament on motorcycle and cycle daily. "My life has been such that my parents have never objected to whatever I have done so far," she said. She later also participated in the discussion on Women's Day in Lok Sabha.
