New Delhi: With former President A P J Abdul
Kalam backing the Kudankulam nuclear project, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy Monday demanded that the Tamil Nadu Government take action against those protesting against the atomic plant.
He said Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa must perform her
"constitutional and statutory duties" to see that national
interest is not sacrificed by those protesting at the "behest
of anti-national forces."

Swamy`s comments come after Kalam, who visited the
nuclear plant site in Tirunelveli district yesterday, asserted
that the project was "completely safe" as it is located in a
low frequency seismic zone.
"I demand that the Chief Minister instead of pandering to
the anti-national demand to wind up the Kudankulam Nuclear
Plant, should give a notice to the demonstrators to clear out
within 24 hours or alternatively invoke NSA, the Unlawful
Activities (Prevention) Act and the Goonda Act to forcibly
clear the area," he said in a statement.
