Flags Of The Leader

Use of red beacons atop vehicles, once a symbol of power, may have been red flagged by the Centre, but the West Bengal government has found an alternative way to perpetuate VIP culture. The idea is from none other than CM Mamata Banerjee, considered a grassroots leader who doesn’t care about VIP protocol. IAS officers of the state cadre can now carry certain types of flags, designed by Mamata herself in her favourite blue colour, on their vehicles so that they could be identified from afar. There will three types of official flags which will be distributed among the IAS officers in accordance with their post and seniority. The transport department, the nodal agency responsible for procurement and distribution, will soon float a tender to select a vendor who will supply these flags.
