Vested Interests Blocking Road Safety Bill: Gadkari

Back to ARC

Struggling to push the proposed road transport and safety bill, Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday blamed vested interest groups for obstructing this key legislation that focuses on transparency and computerization. Despite our best efforts the bill, which we made could not be introduced in Parliament. This is a problem for us. The law falls under the concurrent list and both state governments and the Centre have rights. Different lobbies are there who are opposing the bill, he said while addressing a conference on road safety organized by International Road Federation.
