No where is this pernicious Cult of VIP ism more in play than at Toll Tax Plazas where they have a separate VIP Passage where so called the privileged take a QUICK AND FREE passage where as the under privileged are made to wait and pay.
Every one deeply regrets the incident at Shambhu ( Ambala - Rajpura GT Road ) barrier. After all employees do only what they are told to do.
But the Mushrooming Toll Plazas have made the ordinary motorists extremely unhappy.
The VIP passage should be open only for Police / Army and ambulances. The rest should join the.queues and feel proud to be with the Common Indians and not a Class above them.
The long lists of those Exempted should be cut drastically. It is stated that President of India is exempted. Well Presidents have and rightly so special planes and they do not use Highways.
In the Long Exempted List why are Physically Handicapped Car Travelers not included ? Why So. ?
Small cars like Maruti 800 and Nano cars should be exempted from paying Toll Tax .
Presently a Nano car is made to pay the same amount as a BMW !
