Prakash Javadekar

Prakash Javadekar is an Indian politician belonging to Bharatiya Janata Party and a Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha. He was elected to Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra in 2008. Javadekar is the official spokesperson of the BJP. He is the incumbent Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Government of India. He holds the portfolios of Environment and Forests and Parliamentary Affairs.


On 4 December 2015, Prakash Javadekar has linked the Chennai floods to the global warming caused by developed nations in their bid to industrialise in the last century and half. The Minister said that the Chennai floods is the result of the 0.8 degrees rise in temperature that happened in the last 150 years. He refused to respond to Union Minister Maneka Gandhi's statement that even India is a large polluter now and the West being the historic polluter did not absolve India of its responsibility.

On 5 December 2015, Prakash Javadekar says that Delhi government declaring that vehicles should have Euro VI emission standards from 2017 is an act of "one-manship". He said that the central government has already notified to postpone the Euro VI migration by 2021 because it is the car manufacturers who also need to be ready with the cars complaint to the norm. Javadekar criticized that the Delhi government could only implement such a measure if it does some 'magic' to launch Euro VI complaint vehicles by the stated date.
