New Delhi: Modi sarcar pull a full stop to the VIP culture. Centre banned the red and blue beacon cars. Other than President, Vice President, Prime Minister, LS Speaker and Supreme Court CJ no one will sport the red or the blue beacons henceforth! This rule will come to effect from May 1st.Replying to a tweet hailing the government decision, Modi said: "Every Indian is special. Every Indian is a VIP."
In another post, Modi said: "It should have gone long ago. Glad that today a strong beginning has been made."
"These symbols are out of touch with the spirit of new India."
So far district magistrates, SPs, MPs and other VIPs will have to forgo the status. Most recently Punjab government banned the use of red beacon vehicles and it was followed by the UP government too.
Ambulances and police can use these with some restrictions. With the abuse of these vehicles by our babus and netas, Modi sarcar took a call to end this STATUS culture!
It would be great if Modi government will take radical decision and stop abuse of public funds for luxuries by the netas.
