HYDERABAD: Three out of six vehicles in the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s convoy turned white on Friday. Rao travelled in a white coloured vehicle when he went to Raj Bhavan to meet the Governor.

Rao stunned everyone at Secretariat on Friday, when he arrived from Raj Bhavan. Except the security personnel, no one knew that the VIP’s vehicle clour was changed.  Later, every one at the Secretariat discussed the issue and eagerly went to the C Block to see the change of colours.

It may be recalled that Express reported recently that the colour of the vehicles of the Chief Minister would be changed to white.

When Rao was on a two-day trip to Delhi recently, the officials sent the vehicles to a workshop and painted white colour to three vehicles. The vehicles were taken to BDL, where the required colour change was made, sources said.  The colour of the remaining three vehicles too would be changed shortly.

Earlier, all the six vehicles used by the Chief Minister were sporting black colour when they were originally purchased. But, an official at CMO told Express that the maintenance of black vehicles was highly difficult.

“Maintaining the black shine on the vehicle is very difficult. When it comes to white vehicles, it is easier. When the vehicle gathers dust it would turn into a creamy white and does not look ugly,” the sources said.

Rao wanted his vehicles in white as he considered white as a lucky colour and at his instance the colour has been changed. The lucky number of KCR is six and its representing clour is white.
