Beacon ban makes politicians see red

The union cabinet on Tuesday took a decision to ban red beacons from May 1. The beacon ban applies to the Prime Minister, President and Chief Ministers.

The BJP leaders and Ministers are making sure they take the lead on the implementation but some dissenting voices have emerged especially from regional parties. The Nation at 9 asks whether resistance to such measures designed to dismantle VIP privilege going to prove futile?
