Amarinder and his council of ministers went with a populist move to remove red beacons from all official vehicles.

The Punjab cabinet, in its first meeting in Chandigrah on Saturday, decided that the Chief Minister, legislators and top officials will not use a red beacon on their official vehicles.

Punjab Governor VP Singh Badnore with CM Captain Amarinder Singh and his ministers after their swearing-in on Thursday. Enforcing austerity measures, the Cabinet also cleared the government's decision to ban foreign travel of all ministers and MLAs for two years. He was member of manifesto committee of Congress and promised if Congress government is formed, they will eliminate VVIP culture in the government. "So I expect the new government to fulfil their promises in he first months itself". "All the details are available in government records and also in various studies conducted by farm economists and university experts". "Only the President and Vice-President of India, Speaker of Lok Sabha, Union Cabinet Ministers, Chief Minister, Speaker of Punjab Vidhan Sabha and the state cabinet ministers were entitled to lay foundation stones in Punjab".

Adiyanath vows to work for all sections without discrimination
Adityanath was credited for aiding the BJP in winning 325 of 403 of the Uttar Pradesh's seats during the state's recent elections. After the BJP's astounding victory in UP, ministers had harped on the development plan.

Commenting on the first few decisions announced by the council of ministers, Badal said except a few cosmetic gestures like red beacons, nearly 95 per cent of the announcements are either repeat of old policies or are mere empty rhetoric. There will also be no auction of land of farmers who have availed of loans but have not paid back by any bank, including cooperative ones.

The DTOs posts had already been made irrelevant with the introduction of new format of issuance of driving and registration documents. "All these decisions have funnily been included in the 120 points of the new government", he added. When he was Finance Minister in the SAD-BJP government, at that time too he was the only minister not using the government vehicle to reach office.
