Chief Minister today hailed the Union Cabinet's decision to do away with red beacons on cars of ministers, bureaucrats, politicians and VVIPs.

"The removal of red beacon is a step towards Prime Minister Modi's vision of a new India," Sonowal said in a statement here.

The Union Cabinet's decision was a historic and bold step and the removal of red beacon culture will make the country's democracy stronger, he said.

In view of this ruling on removal of red beacons, Sonowal also directed that such lights atop vehicles in the state be removed immediately.
