Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Transport and Shipping today said given a choice he would prefer dishonest people who makes mistakes than the honest who do not want to take decisions.

Speaking at the launch of motivational Shiv Khera's book 'You can achieve more- Live by design not by default', he said there is no dearth of money or technology in the country or in the government, but there is shortage of people who want to work.

In this context, he cited the instance of the signing an agreement with the (SBI) for a long-term unsecured loan to the tune of Rs 25,000 crore last week.

Gadkari, during his stint as the in the government between 1995 to 1999, was known for executing construction of several flyovers in and the Expressway.

He said people often ask him what is the reason behind his success since he has no experience in civil engineering.

"I don't have the knowledge and science required (for these projects), but I am a dare-devil. I have written on my table that I like people who can get things done. I tell my people that I even like dishonest people who can take the wrong decisions, but I dislike honest people who don't want to take the decisions. I only do what convinces my conscience, I don't fear anyone," he said.
