SC slams Centre over road accidents; CJI asks is this a Panchayat going on here

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday came down heavily on the Centre for not filing it's response in a matter pertaining to road accidents.

The Transport Ministry was fined by the apex court for not filing reply on accidents even after three years since PIL was filed.

The case was being heard by Chief Justice of India TS Thakur.

The CJI slammed the Narendra Modi-led NDA central government saying, “Government is the biggest litigant, but it blames courts for not doing their work well.”

While strongly criticising Chief Justice Thakur had some strong words for the Centre.

He said: “You (Centre) have not filed counter affidavit for more than a year, is this a Panchayat going on here?”

The court imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 on the Transport Ministry

After receiving flak from the top court, the Attorney General assured the bench that the government will file its response within three weeks.
