“I have seen a few photos and videos of Pawan Kalyan`s campaign vehicle on social media platforms as well as in media. In those photos, we can see the vehicle is olive green. I don`t know whether or not Pawan Kalyan will keep the same colour or change it,” said state Additional Transport Commissioner Prasad Rao.
He further added that before purchasing, one should know whether it is for a goods vehicle or a passenger vehicle. If it is a transport vehicle, it should not be converted into a goods vehicle, if it is a goods vehicle, it should not be converted into a camp van.
“On the day of registration, the body, height, and width of the vehicle will be checked, whether it is suitable or not, and we have to check where the vehicle would be registered. If the vehicle comes for registration, we will definitely object to it and verify it. The vehicle registration rules throughout India are the same,” said the state Additional Transport Commissioner.
