Yes before Jairam Environment ministry was known as a rubber stamp ministry. Do you know who was the environment minister before Jairam? It was, wait for it wait for it Raja. hahaha.

If you have been watching Indian news channels you couldn't have miss Jayanthi Natarajan. She is always on tv along with Manish Tiwari as cong. spokesperson. I am surprised by your link because she doesn't look like the kind of person to get involved in that kind of business, but then you never know. Hopefully those allegations are false.

We can hope so. No, I don't watch much TV at all, so I don't see these people

Anyway the portfolio that is given to him Rural development is very very important. Lot of large schemes like NAREGA and others will now come under him where lot of clean up is needed and hopefully he will do a good job there and hopefully save billions for us from being wasted and leaked. Also Jayanti Natarajan who has replaced him is very smart and erudite who knows may be she will also do a good job in environment.
In an interview Mr Ramesh said, he did not look at this as a ministerial job but as a mission, and he was indeed a man on a mission! Just look at the website of Environment Ministry if you did not follow Mr Ramesh closely to give you an idea of the man, you can even read letters which he sent to various people.
I don't know if this means anything, but when Mr Ramesh was there, it was
" Write to the Minister " but since he left, it has changed to " Write to the Ministry".

Read in the newspaper, after the re shuffle
Staff to Mr Ramesh,
Sir, Tigers will miss you.
Mr Ramesh- Cheer up man, I am not going to Mars.
I still can't get over this, it made me depressed

I pray to god that the new minister takes forward the work of Mr Ramesh, but there will only be 1 Jairam Ramesh in this world.

Nice. Respect increased!

He gave a public talk in Chennai a couple of months back. Nearly went, just to take a look. Wish I had done!

You make it sound as if "Superman" was gone !!!

Did you follow what he did before he took over this independent portfolio ? He was a Minister of State you know albeit under a Cabinet Minister.

What good does it do to talk about Alcoa's, Vedas of the world, and then litter the sidewalk with garbage ? Hop into a Petrol wali Gadi to buy Jorda Paan ??

Nope. No idea. Can only speak of what I noticed, and I'm not a current-affairs maniac.

I think I read there are 77 ministers. I'd be hard put to it to name more than three. We notice some of the best and some of the worst; those that make headlines somehow. It would be nice to think that the other 74 go without notice because, at least, they are not doing bad stuff. Or haven't been caught yet.
