Bicycle is also the election symbol of the Samajwadi Party.

According to a statement, the party celebrated the birthday of Khazanchi by cutting a cake and gifts were given to him.

The boy born while his mother was standing in a queue after demonetisation was named Khanzanchi by the party president, the statement said.
