Azamgarh (UP): Samajwadi Party MLA from Azamgarh, Brijlal Sonkar has issued a "sticker" on his letterpad stuck on his nephew's car, which clearly asks the state transport department and police not to harass him.

The sticker on his MLA official letter pad stuck on the car reads:  "UP Transport Department: This is to state that UP50 AT2380 car belongs to my nephew Santosh Sonkar. Please do not harass him.  Mobile No - 09936078541  Sincerely, Sd/- Brijlal Sonkar"

The sticker helpfully gives the MLA's phone number, so that any policeman can cross-check with him if he or she has any doubts.

Sonkar says, normally local policemen and traffic police stop vehicles at most of the crossings and harass people even after they show their valid documents. The MLA says, his nephew had to face similar situations several times. That's why he has issued this sticker, and there was no other motive behind it, says the legislator.

Sonkar had beaten up a local newspaper journalist in 2012 and had held him hostage, after which a district court ordered the local police to file a case against him.
