VVIPs and the Law of the land!

The media (ToI) tells us this:

Following VVIPs/VIPs and spouse are exempted from pre-embarkation security checks at all civil airports:
President Vice President Prime Minister Governors Former Presidents Former VPs CJI LS Speaker Union ministers of cabinet rank CMs & Deputy CMs Deputy Chairman, Planning commission Leader of opposition in LS & RS Bharat Ratna awardees Ambassadors of foreign countries, Charge d’ Affairs; high commissioners and their spouses Judges of SC CEC CAG of India Deputy chairman RS & Dy Speaker of LS Union ministers of state Attorney General of India Cabinet secretary Lt Governors of Union Territories Chiefs of staffs holding the rank of full General or equivalent CJs of High Courts CMs & Dy CMs of Union Territories Visiting foreign dignitaries of a certain status Dalai Lama SPG protectees, Robert Vadra

Do read the last name in the above paragraph and rub your eyes again to check what name you just saw!

OK, while Robert Vadra’s name surely is a WTF entry in this list as are the spouses of all those in the list, I wonder why should anyone be in such a list in the first place!

The security is paramount in this country and law of the land should be same for one and all. All.
