Minister of Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat is getting a lot of praise online after photos emerged of him taking the metro to attend a function without any of the trappings of a typical VVIP. Shekhawat was praised online by many for his humility.

The Jodhpur MP said he had taken the metro to attend Ganpati puja at BJP leader and Haryana Mninister Vipul Goel’s residence. Wearing a simple white shirt and beige pants, the minister was spotted standing in a coach like fellow commuters.

Shekhawat also tweeted photos of his journey from Delhi to Faridabad on Tuesday night.

Photos of him accompanied by a man, probably an aide, went viral on social media. Many residents of Jodhpur also shared how he often travelled back to his constituency from Delhi by train.

In the past, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the metro multiple times in Delhi, on occasions even with visiting heads of state. Several other MPs like JP Nadda and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore have also been spotted travelling in the Delhi Metro.

Even foreign dignitaries and ministers have taken the train during their visits including Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Claudia Ruiz Massieu and former Australian PM Malcom Turnbull.
