Chandra Bhushan, deputy director general of Delhi based advocacy group, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), has left the organization, CSE director general Sunita Narain announced on Friday.
In an email to all staffers, Narian said Chandra Bhushan will be leaving the organization by October.
“As you all know, he has been an important support and extremely valued colleague…please join me in wishing him the best of wishes and success in all his future endeavors,” Narain said in the email.
