Narendra Modi's comment over 'Jayanthi Tax' not an off the cut remark, says Nirmala Sitaraman

Hitting back at Narendra Modi, former union minister Jayanthi Natarajan today said she was targeted since as the environment minister she had stoutly opposed destruction of environment under BJP-ruled Gujarat.

"It is a targeted personal attack. I totally deny what he says. It is completely baseless. There are major green violations in Gujarat. He was destroying the environment. I was opposed to his destruction of environment," Natarajan told PTI.

Modi had earlier today made a veiled reference to the removal of Jayanti Natarjan from Environment Ministry saying for the first time he had heard of "Jayanti tax" apparently referring to allegations during her tenure.
