Donkeys are already a suppressed community since long. They will not be able to bear this additional humilation. So a bicycle is the best thing.

In any case politicians are not worth discussion, so why waste our time on this

In the pink (or is it blue ?) city of LKO, half a dozen X5's would soon be replacing similar number of LC's that are gathering dust all of course paid up by the poor taxpayers money.

Though these blood Suckers don't deserve anything more than a Bycycle but in any case they will burn our hard earned money.

I voted for Ambassador!

Though this is few decades old but still has that Royal charm in it. (Which these leaders don't deserve).

Wish List for the Amby:-

Plonk latest generation CRD Engine for better effeciency
Make some required changes in interiors and Safety not touching the Vehicles heritage and class
Fatty tyres with Chunky Alloys

They don't deserve better. Forget what Mr.X rides around in, when Mr.X's PA drives around in a 5-series, the system really needs a clean-up. A rude shock.

And whatever they get, their security shouldn't be trimmed but completely cut off. Maybe ONE police gypsy for the CM or something. Every random chamcha of some bigshot is followed around by three Gypsies and a couple of Safaris. ***.

Default Why a car?

They are using my money (and yours, too) for their convenience. THey have to really work hard to proce that they are worth it.

I recommend a bicycle to all MPs (they anyway stay close to the Parliament when in session)
MPs with portfolios to be given a Luna (yes, let it get a re-birth)
All Cabinet ministers with state portfolios to be given a pool car - Ambassador since it has most space in that price range. And this should be a CNG vehicle. 4 ministers will get one vehicle and will be used for pick and drop only. FOr other uses, they should get a bicycle.
Senior ministers - Cabinet ministers will get individual car for pick and drop only and a Luna for other conveyence needs.

Woh subah kabhi to aayegi....

I have voted for Innova. The least drain of national resources on maintenance atleast. When my father (who is, thankfully, not a politician) had a white Ambassador it spent 25% time in the workshop.

I would recommend to provide self driven cycle rikshaw with tuffup tube tyres so that they cant have excuse of tyre puncture to attend session in our parliament.
