Odisha CM bans Red Beacon, returns Home without Lal Batti
On a day, when PM Narendra Modi received accolade across the country for ending the VVIP culture by banning red beacons atop vehicles (except emergency services), Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik set an example by implementing the ban with immediate effect.
The CM also led from the front by returning home in a car without red beacon. Not surprisingly, he stole the show with this unprecedented gesture.
CM Naveen Patnaik has been on the forefront most of the times while implementing key central initiatives. That’s the reason he received appreciation from Centre always barring a few exceptions.
