Environmental ministry now will go into each of these permissions which were granted and not granted and make sure that these are expeditiously dealt with only as per law and no other consideration" Jaitley said He said Natarajan’s letter "conclusively establishes" that it was not the statutory or mandatory considerations which weighed with the ruling party "But what weighed with them was the whims of political leaders of the party as to who is to be granted environmental permission and who is not to be granted an environmental permission" the Finance Minister said In a scenario where
