Industrial houses like the Jindals and Essar( both of whom have been known to be very interested in mining in the forests of MP, flouting all laws) hate him for the incessant delays and non-clearance of their proposed projects. As the case described above illustrates, they are very rarely in the right. Land-grabs, inadequate compensation for relocation of displaced villagers, lack of any kind of concrete investments in local infrastructure or economy - all of these just add up to their blatant disregard for the environment as they pursue the bottomline.
In such a scenario, it is refreshing to see a politician like Mr.Ramesh stand up for what is right and beat back the conglomerates.
Here's applauding our Minister for Environment and hoping that the present Government has the courage to keep on the first truly effective environment minister we have had in decades. Cheers to Mr.Ramesh!
