The Chief Minister of Assam Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma rejected the state government’s SAG Ministry’s earlier proposal of procuring two-bulletproof Land-Rovers.
The Government will now instead procure two Toyota Fortuners for the Chief Minister.
Assam’s SAG Minister Ranjeet Kumar Dass had filed the proposal. The proposal also had procurement of new vehicles for other 14-Cabinet Ministers. But, the procurement of the other 14-cabinet ministers is currently held and hasn’t been accepted as of now.
Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Dr. Sarma is currently protected by Z-Category security travels on his vehicle, that is a Kia Carnival, which is not fully armoured. The proposal has been filed to provide the Chief Minister with two fully armoured vehicles.
