Illegal use of hooters by bureaucrats, No rule gives permission to hooter on any vehicle except in emergency service vehicles and vehicles of judges of Supreme Court and High Courts.

Indore : Indoreans have been appreciating the initiative taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to eliminate the VIP culture by removing beacons and hooters from the vehicles of politicians and bureaucrats. But they are annoyed over the lackadaisical attitude of Regional Transport Officer (RTO) to act against such vehicles.

Many vehicles using hooters illegally are plying on roads and RTO officials are turning a Nelsons’ eye to it.

Moreover, regional transport officer MP Singh stopped responding to phone calls and messages over the issue to hide their failure in taking action against self-styled VIPs.

Manager in Dabur India Manoj Jain said, “I have come to now recently that vehicles cannot use hooters except those in emergency services. I am surprised to know that officials are not acting against such vehicles even after having all the powers.”He said that using hooter on vehicles is a stunt for showing influence to people.

Similarly, Ramesh Batra, a super market owner, said, “When Prime Minister and other leaders can leave their VIP culture, why can’t these bureaucrats? RTO must take action against them.”

Housewife Pooja Mishra asked the RTO that why he act only against common man and not against the so called ‘VIPs’.

“RTO has all the rights and he must take action against vehicles using hooters,” she added.

We are waiting to see the RTO wakes up from slumber and strip off the VIP culture of bureaucrats.

What They Say

“What is the need of hooters on vehicles? Bureaucrats also must feel the pain which people are facing on roads due to their traffic mismanagement.” Nirmal Prajapati,  Model.

“If PM can remove beacons and hooters, why can’t the bureaucrats? Rules should be same for all and action must be taken.” Mayur Patidar,  Banker.

“RTO has all the powers to act against such vehicles. Action should have been started as it is already illegal and doesn’t require any new rule.” Amit Airen, Finance Executive.

“Rules are same for everyone. I am surprised why RTO is shying away from taking action against vehicles using hooters illegally.” Preetam Singh Shekhawat, Restaurant owner.
