Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami today removed the beacon light from his car, a day after the Union cabinet decided to do away with the VIP culture.
Palaniswami personally removed the red beacon light from his car and said the action was taken following the union cabinet's decision in this regard yesterday in Delhi.
"From today the red beacon in my car is being removed," he said, adding, his cabinet colleagues will follow suit.
Seeking to end VIP culture, the Union Cabinet yesterday decided that beacon light will be removed from all vehicles, including that of the President, Prime Minister and state Chief Ministers, from May 1.
Beacons, however, will be allowed on vehicles concerning emergency and relief services, ambulance and fire service.
