Pune | The Union Ministry of Environment and Forest will examine the files that former union minister Jayanthi Natarajan has referred to in her letter to Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi, Union Minister for Environment and Forest Prakash Javadekar said.
Talking to UNI at his Pune residence today, Javadekar said, all those files that Natarajan had referred to, will be examined. Her allegations are of a serious nature and this shows how the former UPA government interfeared in administrative work.
Meanwhile, when asked whether Natrajan will be joining the BJP, Jawadekar denied it. There is no such information till now, but the allegations of corruption will be scrutinised and the cabinet will decide further action, he added. He further attacked NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar for ‘always’ making different statements in the state and in Delhi.
Commenting on the recent statement made by Pawar regarding the Rs 3,200 crore exemption given to Vodafone, he said that it is Pawar’s habit to misguide the people, since the exemption was given as per directions of the Bombay High Court and not by the Centre.
Javadekar also spoke on the Anna Hazare issue and said, the Union government does not need the help of media to talk with Anti Corruption crusader Anna Hazare. If the need arises, we will talk directly to Anna. BJP will easily win the Delhi election and we don’t think that Arvind Kejriwal is a strong contender for us, he added.
