Neha Sethi | July 13, 2011

Jayanthi Natrajan, the new minister of state for environment and forests, while assuming charge on Wednesday said that she plans to continue the good work done by her predecessor. “I am aware of spectacular work done by this ministry and its crucial and absolutely vital importance. This is a large ministry dealing with various subjects from Ganges to animal’s welfare, forests and pollution. I am determined to do work for national welfare. The future of the country depends on the work we do here and we will give priority to environmental concerns,” she added.
She said that she believes that sustainable development will happen. Asked about the high rate of environment clearances being granted by the ministry of environment and forests, Natrajan said that nothing should be judged by the rate of rejection of clearances and that she will do whatever is good for the people of the country.
On being asked further questions, she said, “Can I go and do some work now? I am not the spokesperson anymore.”
