Bureaucrats should only say 'yes sir' to ministers: Union Minister Nitin Gadkari

WHAT?

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the bureaucrats should readily implement whatever the ministers say as the govt works according to them. He said, “I always tell the officers, that the govt will not work acc. to what you say, you only have to say "Yes Sir"." 

HOW?

Speaking at an event in Nagpur, Gadkari said, “I always tell the officers (bureaucrats), that the government will not work according to what you say, you only have to say "Yes Sir". You have to implement whatever we (ministers) are saying. The government will work according to us.”

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. “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.”

Citing an example, the Union minister said that in 1995 thousands of tribal children died due to malnutrition in Gadricholi and Melghat as the villages had no roads and the forest laws were coming in the way of developing roads.
