The meeting that was arranged to discuss the environmental issue had to be canceled because a number of officials did not turn up.

  • Vice-chairman of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA)
  • Secretary/joint secretary of the Ministry of Environment
  • DDA officials
  • Municipal chairpersons and more.


Only four the chairperson Jagdambika Pal, Hasnain Masoodi, CR Patil and Sanjay Singh turned up out of the total of 21 Lok Sabha members and eight Rajya Sabha members that were asked to attend the meet.

Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said:

“We will look into why people didn’t turn up. We are very concerned about the environment. We were the first ones to start a joint action plan — short-term, medium-term and long-term since 2015. There are challenges and we need to fight together. I’ve always said that joint cooperation is needed,"

“All five states – Haryana, Punjab Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan — need to come together. I was the one to bring in this concept. This is not a time to criticise each other. This issue should not be politicised.”


AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj said:

“It is very important for officers to turn up to such meetings. Officers are bound to attend the Parliamentary Committee Meeting. AAP’s Sanjay singh was present at the meet.”
