The Kiki challenge is the latest fad that youngsters are hooked on to. It involves the participant to jump out of a slow-moving car and dance on the track “In My Feelings” by Canadian artist Drake, recreating the steps. But ministers and traffic law enforcers are not amused. Karnataka's Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister G Parameshwara said, "It is a very dangerous thing. We would not like to see younger people dying on the streets. That is why we want to discourage this and this is not in conformity with the law.” He further said that if this continues to happen the police will take action. Bengaluru Traffic Police have issued a statement requesting people not to indulge in the Kiki challenge. Same advisories have been issued by Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi police departments. The challenge started when a comedian named Shiggy posted himself dancing to the tune. But no car was involved. The car came into the picture when Shiggy’s friend Odell Beckham Jr. started it.
