“The objective of the EIA2020 draft is clear – #LootOfTheNation This is another terrible example of what the BJP government has been doing for the ‘friends’ of the suit-boot who have robbed the resources of the country. EIA 2020 draft must be withdrawn to stop #LootOfTheNation and environmental destruction,” Gandhi tweeted.
