Itagar, April 22: Lauding the Union cabinet’s decision to ban the use of red beacons on vehicles of dignitaries, the Aruchal Pradesh unit Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) has said that the move would elimite the VIP culture of Congress era and also the chaos associated with the lights. “This move on part of the NDA government reflects the major paradigm shift in the mindset and values of political leaders who are in power now. This will end the symbolic division between the common people and the so-called VIPs. This simply shows the sincere intention of Prime Minister rendra Modi to bring in egalitarian values and practices in the country,” a statement from BJP state president Tapir Gao said.
“The elitist and exclusivist VIP culture of earlier times is a thing of past now. From now on it will be service oriented culture where ministers, MLAs and government officials have to essentially view themselves as servants of the people,” the statement added. The party also lauded chief minister Pema Khandu for removing the red beacons from all his official vehicles as soon as the decision was taken by the Union cabinet.
“Khandu is one of the first chief ministers to do so and his example is worth emulating. This conveys a strong message of his government being people-oriented and one that does not believe in elitist values and culture,” Gao’s statement said.
