‘Fears over Koodankulam plant valid and genuine’
Chennai: Holding that apprehensions of members of the local population protesting against Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNP) were "valid and genuine," the BJP on Thursday
said Centre should "not go through blindly," with the project and address the people`s issues.
"Centre should study the issue carefully, taking into consideration all the recent developments across the globe (such as the Fukushima disaster.) It should not go through the project blindly," BJP national secretary P Muralidhar Rao said.
The "apprehensions of the people are genuine and valid," he told reporters here, adding the government should take a "sensitive decision" on the matter.
He however insisted that Parliament should discuss such issues thoroughly and comprehensively, being the `representative body,` of the people and called for more
transparency on part of government on such matters.
Asked about corruption charges against party colleague and former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddurappa, Rao said he was facing legal proceedings though the party could have dealt with the issue in a different way.
"He has resigned and is facing legal proceedings. The state cabinet could have disowned the Lokayukta report (on land denotification).
