Indore: Following the imposition of the Model Code of Conduct for the General Election, Lok Sabha Speaker and local MP Sumitra Mahajan has given up her Z plus security and protocol vehicle. As she holds a Constitutional post, the state government had provided her Z plus security and government vehicles. In a letter written to Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Mahjan has stated that from March 10, the day when the Model Code of Conduct came into effect, she stopped using government vehicles.
She also said that Indore is a peaceful and safe city and, therefore “I do not need the protocol vehicles and security. Though neither my candidature for LS election has been declared nor have I filled up the forms, but I wish to surrender all government facilities including protocol vehicle and security.”
