SC keen on Gadkari explaining plans for vehicles running on electricity, hydrogen

Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad A. Bobde on Wednesday orally expressed the Supreme Court’s keenness to have Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari attend a hearing and explain his plans to induct vehicles running on electricity, and usage of clean fuels such as hydrogen.

However, Additional Solicitor General A.N.S. Nadkarni said a Minister’s presence in the court would give rise to political speculations.

The exchange happened during the hearing of a petition filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation, represented by advocate Prashant Bhushan, for timely implementation of the Electric Vehicle Policy (EVP) and Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles (FAME) India scheme.
