'Lal batti' to be a thing of the past

Thursday, April 20, 2017

THERE is no 'lal batti' on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cars. 'Lal batti' on vehicles is said to be a status symbol. It is a British legacy which our VVIP's and VIP's want to continue. They have staged protests and fights to possess this symbol. A mayor of Mumbai who was denied the 'lal batti' carried on a struggle for quite sometime to get it. All babus in government offices want it. There are citizens who fancy themselves as VIP's who carry on desperate fight for it.

Actually, it is more than a status symbol: In an emergency, it helps a lot for someone to clear the way and reach their destination. It is a fact that traffic is affected when the 'lal batti' cars pass by. The car owner who has the 'lal batti' gets the right of way. It is good decision the practice of using 'lal battis' will end from May 1. Only the President, Vice-President and the Speaker of the Lok Sabha can use 'lal battis'.The most affected will be the babus across the country who will from now on be denied the opportunity to display their high status. What is to be noted is that it is not a small number of people who have urgent public work to do who are using the 'lal batti'. The whole exercise has become a big nuisance.
