MLC Shantaram Siddhi is one of the rare politicians who is unconcerned about traveling by vehicle. He takes public transportation most of the time, and the people accompanying him travel on the buses with him. When someone wins a Gram Panchayat election, they begin acting like an MLA or MLC, and they are accompanied by a half-dozen of their supporters. We have yet to see a state MLA or MLC use public transportation to get anywhere.
Siddhi believes in living a simple life and wears simple chappals. Shantaram Siddhi’s photo of himself waiting for a bus has gone viral on social media. The MLC was waiting for a bus to Yellapur at Ranibennur Bus Station.
