Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, November 9, said that Urban Maoists live in air conditioned rooms and roam in big cars but it does seem that most of his own party’s MPs travel in fancy and luxurious cars. So are they the Urban Maoists?

“Urban Maoists live in AC surroundings, move around in big cars and their children study abroad, but they ruin the lives of our poor Adivasi youth here through remote control. Why is Congress supporting these Urban Maoists?” says Narendra Modi in Bastar, Chattisgarh.

So here is the list of BJP MPs and their fancy cars as mentioned in their affidavits of 2014 general election

  • BJP president Amit Shah owns a Mercedes Benz, Ford
  • Arun Jaitley, lawyer by profession and BJP MP in Rajya Sabha, owns a Mercedes, BMW, Honda Accord and Porsche
  • Nitin Gadkari, the union transport minister, owns 2 SUVs Toyota Outlander, Mitsubishi Outlander, a Volkswagen sedan Jetta
  • BJP MP and Bhojpuri film star Manoj Tiwari, from North East Delhi constituency, has a fleet of cars, including Audi Q7, Mercedez Benz E280, Fortuner and Honda City
  • Hema Malini, BJP MP from Mathura, owns a Mercedes and Toyota Innova while her husband, superstar Dharmendra, has a Range Rover, Maruti 800 and a motorbike in his name.
  • BJP MLA from Karnataka — B Sreeramulu — is one of the few politicians to own the iconic Hummer in India.
  • Another BJP MP, Meenakshi Lekhi, has not listed any vehicle in her name, but has declared Jaguar, BMW, Beetle and Chevrolet cars in her husband's name. Her husband, Aman Lekhi, is a lawyer by profession.
  • Bollywood actress and MP Kirron Kher has listed a Mercedes Benz in her name, as well as a Scorpio and a BMW in her husband's name.
  • Smriti Irani owns the Sports Utility Vehicle Maruti Ertiga

And this is just the first list.

Also, dear PM, don’t you also travel in a fancy AC car and live in an air-conditioned house that too at the expense of the public?
