New Delhi: Environment Minister Jairam
Ramesh on Monday termed as "most unscientific approach" former
Chief Justice of Delhi High Court A P Shah`s reported
remarks that the Jaitapur nuclear power project would be a
catastrophe if all the safety concerns were not addressed.

"Most unscientific approach. I am disappointed in
Justice Shah," Ramesh told reporters when asked about remarks
of Shah, who is heading a people`s tribunal set up to study
the proposed Jaitapur Nuclear Power Project.

According to reports, Shah during a public hearing on the safety, viability and cost efficiency of
nuclear energy in Mumbai on Saturday said that Enron was only
a financial disaster, but the Jaitapur project would be a
catastrophe.

He also lamented the lack of public debate in the
country on the Jaitapur project saying "everything is
hush-hush".
