Nitin Gadkari’s Viral Comment: “Those Who Do Good Work Never Get Respect.”

Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday raised concern about opportunistic politicians wanting to remain associated with the ruling party of the day and said such “deterioration in ideology” was not good for democracy.

He also said there are leaders who stand firm in their ideology but their number is gradually declining.

“I always say this jokingly that no matter which party’s government it is, one thing is sure that the one who does good work never gets respect and those who do bad work are never punished,” Mr Gadkari said, without taking names.
