According to an English daily, a candidate of Rashtriya Ulema Council party from Gaya Town , Mohammad Parvez Mansoori on Monday rode a buffalo for campaigning in his area.
Masoori said he wanted to show a mirror to politicians as Gaya is one of the dirtiest cities in Bihar. He claimed that if he won the election Gaya would become a pollution-free town.
