      Ramganj Mandi (Kota): Rajasthan's Kota witnessed an interesting incident on Wednesday when a businessman irritated due to technical problems in his car and company's poor service, donated his Rs 10 lakh SUV for picking up garbage.

      At a ceremony here at gram panchayat office, Rajesh Pareta donated his Duster car. Village head Bhagavan Singh and BDO Jagdish Meena were present during the event.

      While handing over the keys, he said-"From today onwards, this vehicle belongs to you. There is only one condition, that it will be used only for picking garbage." His announcement shocked those present.

      In fact, before donating the car, he wrote on it "garbage collecting vehicle".

      Duster was gathering dust in the workshop for 200 days

      Rajesh Pareta said, he bought the Duster in 2012 and from the very beginning the car was having issues in its electrical system and air condition and out of 365 days, 200 days it was lying in the company's workshop.

      Despite this, the company was unable to fix the problems and at last he decided to donate it to the village for collecting garbage.

      Rolls-Royce story

      There is a very interesting story that during the London visit of famous Maharaj Jai Singh of Alwar, Rolls-Royce insulted him as he went to the showroom in plain clothes. He again sent a message that the Maharaja of Alwar is coming to buy cars and this time he was given a red carpet reception. He bought all the six cars parked at the showroom. On arrival to India, he used all the car for picking up garbage in Alwar. It is only after the company apologized, he withdrew them.

      I was under the impression Duster was one of the better vehicles - is this an one off case or are there many ppl facing this issue? Couple of my friends having Duster are pretty happy with it..

      Renault should have a 'Keep India Clean' campaign and use this car in their ads.
