Certain court decisions difficult to implement: Gadkari

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari today said certain decisions of the courts are difficult to be executed by the government.

"I am exactly telling you the truth. Suppose, someone wants to run a government, the process is simple. You have to fight elections ... but a media house or judiciary cannot take charge of administration.

"I am sorry to say in many cases, the way in which decisions are given by the courts, it is difficult to execute," Gadkari, who is the Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, said here.

The senior minister's comments came against the backdrop of many projects pending due to litigation related to environmental and other issues.

Speaking at the India Economic Summit organised by WEF and CII, the minister also said, "I have respect for judiciary, I have respect for judges but at the same time this poor country needs development".

With regard to woes faced by the country's infrastructure sector, Gadkari said efforts are being made to convert the problems into opportunities.
