Chennai: Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami on Thursday 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 on Wednesday.

“From today the red beacon in my car is being removed,” he said, adding that his cabinet colleagues will follow suit. Seeking to end VIP culture, the Union cabinet on Wednesday decided that beacon lights will be removed from all vehicles, including that of the President, Prime Minister and chief ministers, from 1 May.

Beacons, however, will be allowed on vehicles concerning emergency and relief services, ambulance and fire service.
