Bullock cart ride leaves Jaya Prada shrieking

Real life hurts

Film actress and Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Jaya Prada have cried in pain “reel life” many times, but on Sunday the actress-turned-politician screamed during the tour of her flood-affected Rampur Lok Sabha constituency.

Jaya Prada, who was travelling on a bullock cart, as there was no other way to reach the inaccessible Pasiyanpura village, tripped and twisted her ankle after one of the wheels of the cart got stuck in flood waters, according to reports.

According to SP leaders here, the actress could have suffered serious injuries if the cart had plunged into the flood waters.As Jaya Prada cried in pain, her supporters accompanying her helped her get up and resume her journey. She later announced to construct a road in the area.

Though in tears, the SP leader visited the flood-affected areas along with local SP workers.
The brush with reality on a bullock cart, tractor and boat to get the experience of the devastation left her shrieking at one point of time. The bumpy ride on pot-holed roads had Jaya Prada in tears. She had to be consoled by those accompanying her.

The Rampur MP, who assured locals of all possible help, was so moved by the scene that she only talked philosophically about the vagaries of nature, which led to inundation of large areas that were till few days back facing acute water shortage.
