Digvijaya Singh flouts SC order on red beacons
In utter disregard to the Supreme Court directive on the use of beacons, AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh went around the city on Thursday in a convoy of vehicles most of which including his sported the red beacons.
The apex court had made it clear on Tuesday that the red beacon with flasher was meant for only a small band of high dignitaries holding constitutional posts like the President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of India.
Digvijaya is only a party functionary but strode all over Hyderabad in the red beacon armed Toyota Camry. The AICC general secretary arrived in the city by flight in the afternoon and after getting into the beacon-fitted vehicle, drove down to a star hotel in Madhapur for a family event hosted by a state businessman. He later called on PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana at the latter’s official residence in Banjara Hills before parking himself at the Lake View Guest House where he spent the most part of the evening meeting Congress ministers and leaders.
