Madurai: The regional passport office here has
issued a notice to SP Udayakumar, convener of a movement spearheading the stir against Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant,
asking him to surrender his passport within 15 days.
The letter from the Madurai (south) region passport office
asked him to surrender his pasport within that period as 98 criminal cases are pending against him and that if he failed to so within that period, the document would be impounded.
Talking to reporters, Udayakumar, convener of People`s
Movement Against Nuclear Energy alleged that officials are
selective in impounding passports.
However, the office refuted the charge, pointing out that passports of even politicians had been impounded.
He said he had sent a legal notice to the officer
concerned and that he was entitled to have a passport for
identification and he would not surrender it.
