KCR Bullet Proof Toyota Prados
This decision was taken in view of security inputs to maintain uniformity of vehicles. Chandrasekhar Rao is touring districts extensively for the last few months – be it attending Haritha Haaram or some other government programmes. With the soon-to-be-launched Grama Jyothy scheme, he is expected to make a whirlwind visit of various districts once again.
According to sources, the cost of each Land Cruiser Prado is nearly 1.3 crore. These swanky SUVs, known for robust, sleek and distinctive features, were upped on security quotient at BDL (Bharat Dynamics Limited) in Hyderabad. Also they were taken to Yadadri temple where priests performed prayers after which they were added to the convoy.
Officials of the security wing claimed that presence of different model vehicles posed terror threat. It was easy for assailants to identify the four-wheeler in which the Chief Minister was seated earlier.
But now this problem could be overcome. The purpose of having same type of vehicles was the most important feature for any VVIP convoy, they said.
