Nithyananda has fled the country after a rape case was registered against him in Karnataka, and it will be a waste of time searching for him here, the police said.

He further demanded that it must be withdrawn to stop environmental destruction.
“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 EIA 2020 draft must be withdrawn to stop #LootOfTheNation and environmental destruction,” Gandhi tweeted.
The former Congress chief termed the EIA 2020 draft, which has been placed by the BJP government for public feedback, as “disgraceful and dangerous.” Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar had said that the final notification regarding EIA 2020 has not been issued and the draft notification is still open for public consultation for more than 120 days.

Earlier on Sunday, In a Facebook post using the hashtag ‘WithdrawEIA2020’, Gandhi slammed the government over the EIA, 2020, draft, saying it is not only “disgraceful”, but “dangerous”.

“Not only does it have the potential to reverse many of the hard fought gains that have been won over the years in the battle to protect our environment, it could potentially unleash widespread environmental destruction and mayhem across India,” he said.
