Mumbai: Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday made it clear that bureaucrats believe the government functions as per the advice and plans prepared by them. Therefore, they easily implement whatever the ministers say.
Speaking at an event in Nagpur, Gadkari said, “I always tell the officers (bureaucrats) that the government will not follow as per your advice.” Your only duty is to say, “Yes Sir.” You have to implement whatever we (ministers) are saying. The government will work according to our plans. ”
The Minister of Road Transport and Highways also quoted Mahatma Gandhi and said that no law comes in the way of the welfare of the poor, which always remains on the priority list. “I know that no law comes in the way of the welfare of the poor. If such a law has to be broken even 10 times, we should not hesitate. This is what Mahatma Gandhi said.
The Union minister, while citing an example, said that in 1995, malnutrition occurred in Gadricholi and Melghat. Therefore, thousands of tribal children were the victims of malnutrition. The villages had no access to roads to provide food on time.
