Ranchi, Jan 3 (IANS) Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren Friday directed that no sirens should be used in his official cavalcade.
After a meeting with Chief Secretary R.S. Sharma and Director General of Police Rajiv Kumar, Soren instructed all ministers and officers not to use sirens in Ranchi or any other town in the state.
Ministers and officers should not travel with "unnecessary" cars apart from the essential security vehicles, and should be sensitive to the problems faced by common people because of the unnecessary long cavalcade, he said.
A long convoy with a large number of security men also results in reduction of deployment of security forces at important places, Soren said.
