Congress should show outrage on Natarajan rather than on Narendra Modi: BJP

New Delhi/ Bhopal, Jan 14 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party slammed the ruling Congress party for showing outrage against Narendra Modi's remark and said that anger should have been instead directed against the red-tapism shown by the Ministry of Environment and Forests. BJP Spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman asked Congress to divert its sense of outrage towards its former Minister of Environment and Forests Jayanthi Natarajan. According to reports, as many as 350 files were found to be held back, some even dating back to 2011, by Natarajan during her tenure, which delayed clearances for various developmental projects.
