New Delhi, Apr 19: In a big move to end VIP culture, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday banned the use of red and blue beacon on vehicles of dignitaries, including the President, Prime Minister, ministers, and judges.


The decision will be implemented from May 1.

However, emergency vehicles, like ambulance, can continue to use red or blue beacons.

The newly-formed governments in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab under the leadership of yogi Adityanath and Captain Amarinder Singh respectively, have already shunned the use of red beacon lights on vehicles.

Modi Government and BJP must thank Kejriwal/AAP for taking the initiative.
Copycat ???
A Panel should be formed by the Centre/LG to investigate How and Why AAP/Kejriwal took this decision before Modi Government.

Do politicians really need that red light? NO. Before VIP movement all roads are blocked already. By removing light you can't bring relief to citizens. Move with general public as a normal citizen of India.

This is good but a Diversion Tactics of Modi in the name of another Nationalism. The Government has miserably failed all around in their call for Development and Growth and more in terms of Economics of the Country and they need some thing to be in lime light as the Election Season nears now At the end it is our Hard Earned Tax Payers money being lavishly enjoyed and used by these white Posh Netas of India.
