PMANE threat to go on fast again over Kudankulam

Protesters, including people of villages in and around Kudankulam, have been demanding scrapping of the Indo-Russian project since August last, citing safety concerns.



Madurai: People`s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), spearheading the stir against Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, on Wednesday threatened to resume their indefinite stir on May 1, saying officials had not fulfilled the promises made to them during the March 27 talks.

In a press release on Wednesday, PMANE said none of their demands, including persuading protesters to give up their indefinite fast to secure release of activists from prisons and providing KNPP documents on the inter-governmental agreement between India and Russia on KKNPP had been fulfilled.

PMANE said their nine day long indefinite hunger strike had been withdrawn on March 28 after officials agreed to look into their demands. Since none of their demands had been met, they threatened to again resume it from May 1.
Protesters, including people of villages in and around Kudankulam, have been demanding scrapping of the Indo-Russian project since August last, citing safety concerns.
They launched the indefinite fast after the state cabinet on March 19 gave its go ahead for commissioning of the first of the two reactors, but withdrew it after senior district officials assured them that their charter of seven demands would be conveyed to the government for consideration.
