  • The PMK on Monday opposed the draft Environment Impact Assessment notification of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change saying it contradicted India’s stand on ‘greenhouse gas emission commitments’.
  • In a letter to Mr.Javadekar, he reiterated that India must make efforts to reduce emission, increase green cover and protect environment by enacting more stringent laws.
  • The draft, if implemented in its present form, will grossly deplete India’s green cover and destroy the environment and produce long-lasting negative impact on the country, he felt.
