After clipping wings of the National Wildlife Board and officially making it illegal, the Govt. of India has put the greatest CLEARANCE SALE for Wild Life and Environment ever since it took charge at the centre.
Pasting below an article by Nithin Sethi & Somesh Jha in the Business Standard that shows how this illegal committee will decide the fate of 80 national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and tiger reserves just in two days in a meeting which is definitely going to be biased towards the 140 environmentally destructive projects.
The Modi Government, which came to power promising Good Governance has set example of another non-transparent and autocratic functioning by not even making the agenda of the meeting public.
So, it is party time for Industrial and Corporate Houses and all those who are interested in destroying India's rich biodiversity, wildlife and environment all in the name of development.
Party time 'Development' folks! Celebrate, your good days have come!!
Thankfully the tigers, elephants, bears, snakes, monkeys, trees, rivers, fishes and all these species are not voters in the Indian democracy. Or else they would have died in shame even before the clearances are given, thinking about the senseless and shameless men they voted for!!!
And, I am sure, this is just the beginning of many such moves to come.
So, best of luck India and Environment....
