New Delhi, Sep 4 : On the issue of creating exclusive lanes for VIPs, including sitting judges, at all toll plazas on national highways, Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal made a satirical remark that  judges  should be concerned about the million pending cases in courts  rather “A creamy layer Republic?”

Kapil Sibal tweeted, “Madras High Court orders NHAI separate toll gates for VIP’s (including Judges) and ordinary citizens. A million cases pending in High Court’s should worry judges a little more than having to wait 15 minutes at a toll bridge. A creamy layer Republic ?”

The Madras High Court on Wednesday directed the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to take steps for providing a separate lane at toll plazas for VIPs, including sitting judges, across the country.

“It is disheartening to note that the vehicles of VIPs and sitting Judges are stopped at toll plazas… It is very unfortunate that sitting judges are also compelled to wait in the toll plaza for 10 to 15 minutes,” it said.

It warned that the court would issue a show cause notice to the authorities concerned unless a circular was issued and any violation of the order would be viewed seriously.
