Basic rights denied at Kudankulam: Report
Chennai: The central and Tamil Nadu governments should stop harassing people protesting against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) and withdraw cases registered against them, a report said Monday.
The report was prepared by a committee comprising retired Chief Justice of Delhi High Court AP Shah, lawyer Geeta Ramaseshan and Prabha Kalvimani of the Irular Tribes Protection Association.
The report was prepared based on a public hearing held by the committee at Kudankulam in Tirunelveli district, around 650 km from here.
Releasing the report here Monday, Ramaseshan told reporters that freedom of speech and movement of people in the area was restricted.
She said people were denied basic information on matters related to their safety arising from the nuclear project.
According to the report, the central government should release information on safety issues as per the orders of the Central Information Commission (CIC).
