In shocking development, the Government of Jharkhand has given special permission to buy lavish car BMW for the Chief Minister Hemant Soren. The decision comes at a time when the state government is going through an economic crisis due to a prolonged lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
CM Hemant Soren will soon stop using the old car as the new car BMW is going to be purchased for him. The world famous BMW car model 520D has been preferred for the CM Soren.
The price of this car is about Rs 60 lakh. Currently, Hemant Soren is using a Camry car that is over 5 years old. The car was purchased during the tenure of the previous Jharkhand government.
Besides BMW 520d, a proposal to purchase another lavish car for the CM has been approved. This car will be Toyota Innova Crysta. Proposal for both cars has been approved by the CMO and now these cars are expected to be purchased soon.
It is being told that Luxury Cars will be bought for other ministers as well. None of the ministers of JMM, Congress and RJD coalition have got a new car in the state. Many ministers are traveling in their own car.
It is believed that the government has approved the proposal to purchase lavish vehicles for all ministers. However, this decision did not go down well with the public. The government is thinking of purchasing lavish vehicles, while people in the state are struggling for medical facilities amid the coronavirus epidemic.
Buying vehicles should not be the priority of the government at a time when the entire nation is going through a bad patch.
