It has been learnt that our parliamentarians have requested for blue passports. As per my knowledge, this would relieve them from getting visas for many countries and would provide them special counters at airports for check-in etc. In our country, which is already fed-up with the `VIP Culture,’ such request is highly inappropriate. Since they are public representatives of the highest level and mostly very influential, I don’t think they would have any problem in getting a visa or they would have to face any difficulty in being checked in an airport. There is no need for any special treatment for the representatives of the people.
