Head of State-what do they drive??

Recommended Posts

hi,was watching the R-Day parade and a question struck me,what cars do our ministers drive,should they be consistent all over( i mean in all states)..for staters, our PM/Presi/VP/Ms Sonia gandhi/AB Vajpai get around in the new BMW 7 series(7 nos  bought by the then PM Mr AB VAjpai, now shared by the above people).comming to the state level, in Tamilnadu the cm used the SAFARi or sometimes the AMBY. while his convoy consists of AMBYS/SAFARIS and INNOVAS(3 in no).

 

while the x-CM used MIts Pajero and the TAta Sierra(privously)

 

once in a tv report i saw 7 PRADOS used by the UP cm. so guys what about your states any info on that.

Karnataka governor has recently got a bullet proof Amby, previously it was an old Mercedes. As far as I know, there is a limit of 9 lakhs for buying a new car in the government, but almost every minister manages to get around that rule and buy themselves Corollas, Octavias and CR-Vs

The cars given to the employees depend on the position and thus govt. gives them money for buying which ever car they like in that price bracket .They can add on their money if they want better.

i hope CBI sets up a law suit against this guy's finances and puts him behind the bars. The Tax officers should raid these ppl and reduce the current taxing policy which will benefit poor ppl like me smiley7.gif... Our FM is only fit for giving statements and interviews on TV!

R Day parade gave us an opportunity to see the VVIP fleets.

The three service chiefs move in Army - Black, Navy- white and Air Force- Blue Ambassadors- their pilot cars are all Maruti Gypsies..

The Defence  Minister  A.K. Anthony  moves  around in a white Ambassador with defence registration.His two Ministers of State also move on white Ambassadors with Delhi registrations.

The Prime Minister's car is a BMW 7 series and its no. is DL2C BX 4000. At the same time the escort cars for the PM were all silver Tata Safaris- not a single Ambassador in this fleet.

The Vice President came in a Mercedes Benz with white Ambassadors to escort his car.

The President came in another Mercedes Benz with some white Ambassadors in tow.

The Army contingent with the awardees moved in Maruti Gypsies- no Mahindra jeeps this time again.Though I've seen many Mahindra diesels (540DP) do their duty in mountain divisions in the Himalayas with the Iveco trucks.

@vtec guy      it's in gurgaon, haryana (where all the malls are)

 

i still remember when i used to go around with dad in gypsies and amby..........it was quite fun..... cars going in line like ants.....

 

@anjan  the amby are black while gypsies are green for army and blue for navy...... you can regognise a army vehicle with there number as they start with a arrow pointing upwards.....

well Cheif Minsiter of Haryana uses Endeavours for his security  personnel...he has got mercedez for himself....he was suppose to buy b.m.w but since PM is using services of B.M.W he opted for mercedez....that was in the news... Since i live in chandigarh i get to see all these politicians flying by every now and then....surely taxes we pay are being used in right direction for needy and greedy people
