Chief minister Vasundhara Raje now in a move to become much like a Aam Aadmi and has instructed to curtail her security by half from January 1. She has told the DGP that public security is paramount and should be given preference accordingly. Heeding to the request, police has started deputing officers to other places from CM security.

Going the Aam Admi Party way, the CM will now have lesser personnel protecting her. Rajasthan police has already started reviewing her protection and will recall half of her security staff from Wednesday. “After her orders, we are making necessary arrangements. The exact number will have to be worked out but it will be fairly large,” said director general of police (DGP) Omendra Bhardwaj.

To protect CM, the security ring is spread over her office, house, Jodhpur and Bikaner house apart from the close protection given when is on the move. “We will ensure that her safety is not compromised. Even with lesser personnel, we will make the fool-proof arrangements,” said Bhardwaj.

Raje, off late, has taken a slew of steps that put her in league with chief ministers of Delhi, Tripura and Goa. Just after becoming CM designate, she asked her convoy to follow rules and stop at red lights. She also instructed not to stop traffic on roads when she is on move in city.

“The message is simple and clear. The CM is a public representative and not above them. She ensures that common man should not feel any inconvenience because of her. These decisions go do well with public as they feel that CM is just one among them,” said a senior official of CMO.

In another measures, Raje decided to continue living at her old house and not at current chief minister house. While traveling at distant places she chooses not to use state plane and travel in commercial flights.

“If CM is doing this than it’s a move that should be appreciated. Voters have become aware and don’t tolerate tantrums of those who hold powerful posts,” said Veena Shastri, sociology teacher at a private school.
