"We are reviewing many issues, including Shah Commission's recommendations and findings on mining scam, in the state. The review will be completed by July-end. After that, we will prepare an action plan for the state," he said.

"We will work for the development of the state as the Central government love the people of Odisha and committed for their welfare," the senior BJP leader stated.

Javadekar said files of a large number of projects of the Congress regime have been pending in the Environment Ministry and chief ministers of every state are coming to his ministry to resolve the issues.
Taking a dig at the Odisha government, Javdekar said that no body from the state government has come to his ministry and has not shown any interest in clearing the pending cases.

"While Chief Ministers of different states are lobbying to clear projects pending with the MoEF, none from Odisha has come to us," Javdekar said.
He said that the Centre would continue with its development programme for Odisha even if there is no cooperation from the state government.
The Minister even expressed his displeasure over the ratio of Central fund utilization by the Odisha government.

Replying to a question on the Posco project in the state and the Polavaram project in neighbouring Seemandhra, he said no project will be implemented without complete rehabilitation.

"It is not for one state, it is applicable for all states," he said.
