"People ask me whether I travel on a scooter. I tell them that I dont any more. My mind is filled with work related thoughts and if I ride my scooter while my mind is somewhere else, then I could meet with an accident," Parrikar told a gathering of BJP workers in Canacona yesterday.
Driving home a point of safety at the gathering, Parrikar said that he now avoids riding or travelling pillion on a scooter.
In the past, media reports have often cited that Parrikar was still riding a scooter in Panaji as he went about purchasing things from the local markets.
