Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Monday informed that there are 103 VIPs under  different categories in the state which includes 2 under Z+ category, 10 under Z categories, 19 Y category and 72 X category.


Replying to a query raised by Opposition Voice of the People Party (VPP) chief Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit, Sangma told Assembly that the security entitlements of protected persons is as per ‘Yellow Book’, a secret document of security arrangement adding hence, he is restricted to give too many details on the yellow book.


Meanwhile, Basaiawmoit demanded action against the use of tinted glasses.


Raising the issue during the question hour in the Assembly, Basaiawmoit said there are too many people who are behaving themselves as VIPs. He alleged that such people using tinted glasses sometimes are friends, relatives or business partners of those at the helm of affairs.


The Nongkrem legislator said that the Supreme Court on April 27, 2012 has prohibited the use of tinted glass on vehicles beyond the permissible limit prescribed under the Motor Vehicles Act, saying its use was a social evil and helped criminals to escape from the clutches of law.


In his reply, chief minister Conrad K Sangma assured the House that immediate action is taken whenever complaints have come to the notice of the government. He said, “Even in my vehicle I don’t put black films”.
