Cars with red beacons are a nuisance
The Supreme Court has rightly expressed concern over red beacons on cars of many privileged ones becoming nuisance for public-life causing hardships in traffic and other problems.

RED-LIGHT cars and a fleet of security-persons by those in politics are nowadays mainly required for status-symbol rather than actual necessity. An appreciable part of available security forces is misused for such status symbol where many misuse security-personnel for even household jobs.

Case of killing of Lalit Maken should not be forgotten when the security-persons on duty were somewhere else at the time of his killing. Drastic cut in security to undeserving ones like ordinary MLAs, MPs, ministers and other politicians can be better utilized for security of general public.

Prime Minister of a country in response to demand of Parliamentarians there replied that those sensitive to their lives, need not contest elections at all! Same principle should be followed in India.

However, security must be provided for those who really deserve it like President, Vice President, Prime Minister and few others. Traffic-movement of such VVIPs should be minimized by tele-inauguration of events, and/or by holding functions at their official residences rather than at other venues.
