Bhubaneswar: As the Modi government has imposed complete ban on red beacons atop the vehicles of. VIPs and VVIPs with effect from May 1 and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik following the suit forthwith, his party MP and its Chief Whip in the Lok Sabha Tathagata Satpathy has pooh poohed such a decision by dubbing it a 'cosmetic show' on his official twitter handle.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik stole a march over its political bête noire by ordering to end the VIP culture forthwith rather than May 1.

He issued instant order to implement it from Wednesday (April 19) itself.

He even reportedly returned Naveen Niwas from the State Secretariat without the red beacon on his official car.

However, Tathagata Satpahty attacked PM Modi by referring his middlename Damodardas and also termed the whole affair as just a cosmetic show.

He also provided some advice regarding the end of VIP Culture.

Reacting to the tweet by his party MP on removal of security, CM Patnaik said to the media persons here, "I think this type of thinking is to be done." and his reactions on terming red beacon removal as a joke, he replied, "I think there is no harm doing away with it."
