It is going to be a “motorhome” for Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao when he steps out to campaign for the upcoming general elections in 2019, according to a report by The New Indian Express.
The bullet-and-mine-proof is expected to cost a whopping `6.5 to `7 crore with additional features of a motorhome which automatically expands at the rear by one metre at press of a button, the report stated.
According to the report, the vehicle, a Finetze model from Pinnacle, will have elegant and luxurious interiors with a galore of features. It will have a seating capacity of up to six passengers. The rear of the vehicle will have a private cabin with a sofa, which once expanded, converts into a full-size bedroom. The lounge area will also have a motorised convertible bed. The vehicle comfortably sleeps 4. The motorhome will also have an onboard washroom with sink, and the electromagnetic pump operated western closet, the report stated.
Telangana Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) officials presented a model Recreational Vehicle (RV) to the CM this month, according to the news report.
“The State government wants a bus that can make additional room for the chief minister to take rest. A standard RV motorhome will be 10 metres but the one extra metre will allow a bed or a small toilet that can be accommodated. The sample vehicle will have to be stationary when it is being expanded at the back,” The New Indian Express quoted TSRTC sources as saying.
It is, however, not known if the CM has approved the special feature. K Chandrasekhar Rao is expected to convene a meeting with Intelligence Security Wing(ISW) officials who are in-charge of his safety and security. Not just this, the bus will be both bullet and bomb proof, equipped with WiFi, GPS tracking and other security features, the TSRTC source was quoted as saying by the New Indian Express.
