haha..thats funny!! Can they be ordered in bulk,coz we have a zillion politicians to deal with.

If there was any criteria to decide who gets what car, and if that was based on merit -I'd love that!
Uneducated- Public transport
1st through 12 th grade- Amby
Bachelor's degree- Any decent sedan ( maximum limit of Rs 8lakhs).
Masters/ PhD- An SUV (Maximum limit of Rs 13-15 lakhs).

But then, irrespective of education, if they are good individuals & do their duties just right, then any car worth of saving their lives!

IMO, the Army tank is now a days the best "car" for politicians.

It will save their precious life from bullets and bombs of the terrorists.

As they only care about them selves and forgotten the "Aam Admi" of India.


It will also save them from our Eggs, tomatoes & "SHOES".

The Ambassador should be retired from service altogether.
The Tata Indigo XL is similarly priced, comfortable and INDIAN. That would be my choice for politicians.

TATA SAFARI. Here is why

1) Its Indian Car. Indian govt car has to be made by Indian manufacturer.
2) Its Huge and represents power. No matter what you think, all polticians are powerful people. May be thats why we hate them because we can't beat them. Have you dared bad mouthing with politician?
3) Diesel economy, large space and comfortable.
4) Can be driven in villages and in poor road conditions.

I Vote that they only use an Amby

Let them use the A/C Amby with Isuzu Engine.

Huge and Spacious
Comfortable like a Sofa at the back seat
Easy to maintain on Tax Rupees
Always Driver Driven so who cares about the driveability

Ambassador was the best suited car for the "Indian Politician".

But not either Safari or Scorpio suites better. There are votes for Verna, City, SX4 etc..LOL!

I know a politician who has all the SUVs and UVs below 12L. :-) Almost all!!!!

Default Why do some of our prospective PMs not have a car of their own?


Sonia Gandhi
Sonia Gandhi's assets: Rs 1.38 crore, house in Italy


L.K Advani

The Hindu : National : Advani declares assets


Mayawati
Mayawati's assets are worth Rs 52 crore


Narendra Modi
Modi declares assets worth 40 lakh to EC - India - The Times of India

I will be the first to jump down your throat - PC won!
He deserves a Toyota Camry - trouble free and great back seat. I do not wish a Skoda on him!
