Bharath’s Porsche SUV being sold by Agriculture Ministry

The controversial luxury Porsche Cayenne vehicle once used by former People’s Partnership Food Production Minister Vasant Bharath for ministerial duties is now up for sale.

In 2010, Bharath’s ministry paid $400,000 for the blue SUV, licensed PCR 100. Its original price was estimated at $925,000 but vehicles purchased by ministries and government agencies are exempt from taxes and duties.

An advertisement published in today’s newspaper by the Ministry of Finance’s Central Tenders Board invites offers for the purchase of the high-end vehicle.
