God bless this country, your officers are living in ivory towers: Delhi HC
NEW DELHI: The Centre’s officers are living in “ivory towers” oblivious of ground realities that Covid-19 has not spared a single-family, Delhi High Court said on Tuesday, after getting to know that an Indian firm collaborating with Sputnik vaccine makers of Russia is being starved of funds by the Centre.
“Which bureaucrat is giving you instructions? Is he not alive to the situation? God bless this country. That is why we are facing this situation. In such matters instructions are need to be taken from the highest authorities, that, too, within 30 minutes,” the court said, highlighting that such partnership attempts with foreign vaccine manufacturers are an opportunity to the nation facing shortage of vaccines.
“Tell your officers it is an opportunity for you, don’t lose it. The vir s has not spared any single family. Your officers are living in ivory towers,” a bench of justices Manmohan and Navin Chawla remarked.
“Does your officer not see so many deaths are taking place in the country and we are short of vaccines? You are so short of vaccines and you are not taking it through. Maybe it is an opportunity for you. Don’t be so negative. It is like a raging fire and nobody is bothered. You people don’t understand the larger picture or what,” the court fumed.
“No one is applying its mind” when there is an opportunity for the go nment to get millions of vaccines, the bench said. “Otherwise, deaths will continue to happen. Every day you are castigated by each and every court and still you are not awake.”
Best comment by Delhi HC on current state of affairs. Acche din indeed.
Had this been a bjp friendly firm, not only would funds be given but supreme beard would come out in advance to announce and get credit.
When the guy sitting at top is not bothered, what do you expect from these officers. Seriously, feel like living in a third world country.
just put them in jail and bang them hard...
Real issues not being attended to by the courts.
all judges of India court, please clear old cases. don't take bribe and give justice. citizens of this country not afraid of law

What about disposal of pending cases with Courts running in lacs ? Who is accountable for huge pendency? Did judges reported that how many cases they had disposed of in a year?
Delhi HC judges seems to think themselves biggest experts in the world. morons.
Crores of cases pending in courts since decades ... Are you slee. MY LORD ....
The judiciary is also in ivory towers, just as bureaucracy is. Burden borne by tax payers.
Can Judges say that judiciary is not corrupt? Let Judges first set their own house in order and come out of their own Ivory Towers before indulging in judicial activism.
