We are working hard for job creation: Prakash Javadekar

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has said that all policies and projects of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government are tailor-made for job creation.

He termed as “malicious” and “incorrect” a recent report which said that pollution levels in India were so high that they could shorten ones life span by a couple of years.

“The report is malicious and incorrect, especially coming as it does on the eve of the Prime Ministers visit to the US,” Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters on the sidelines of an interactive session with industrialists in Coimbatore without naming the report.

He claimed that only seven kilometres of road was laid per day during UPA regime, while it was 22 km per day in the last two years, providing job opportunities to thousands and this will be increased to 30 km per day soon.

Addressing a session organised by the local chapter of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Javadekar said there is a need to build up public opinion to usher in bold tax reforms. “GST will be passed in this monsoon session and rolled out next year,” Javadekar said.

He also said the Bharatiya Janata Party is reaching out to all political parties, including the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, for passage of Bills in the Rajya Sabha, said Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister of State of Environment, Forest and Climate Change on Tuesday. The BJP-led NDA does not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha.
