Act against Koodankulam protestors: Centre to TN
Chennai: With no solution in sight to end
the protest against Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant, the
Centre on Saturday asked the Tamil Nadu government to act against
the protestors since cases have already been filed.
"Why has the state government not acted against the
protestors (despite filing cases)", Minister of State in the
PMO V Narayanaswamy asked.
Criticising the protestors` act of preventing scientists
from proceeding to work in the plant, he also expressed the
Centre`s willingness to hold talks with them.
Recalling Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s statement that
the first reactor would be operational in a few weeks and the
second in another six months, he told reporters, "This would
address the power needs of Tamil Nadu and the cost of per unit
would be around Rs 2.80."
KNPP has hit a roadblock following intensified agitation
from locals who want the plant to be shut down, citing the
Fukushima nuclear disaster earlier this year.
