December 24: Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily has taken additional charge of the environment ministry. The move comes days after Jayanthi Natarajan resigned from the cabinet to work for the Congress Party. Moily promised to take a balanced approach to project approvals, saying that while he would not compromise on the environment, projects would not languish just for want of his approval.
