NewsClick interviewed D. Raghunandan, President of All India Peoples Science Network, on TSR Subramanian Committee report. According to Raghunandan, the report is an attempt to dismantle the existing legislative provisions and weaken the environmental protection mechanisms. The report also suggests the removal of judicial review of environmental clearances in order to help big business. This report is an attempt to extend to entire India the Gujarat model, in which environmental pollution control measures were completely jettisoned. This abandoning of all pollution control measures is what has made Vapi, an industrial town in Gujarat, the most critically polluted area in the country.
