India said a deal with Russia over the new unit of nuclear power plant in Kudankulam, Tamil Nadu, is close to realisation.
Marxist leader V.S. Achuthanandan Tuesday left for Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu to protest against the nuclear project but was stopped by police on the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border.
The Central government-appointed expert group is scheduled to have its fourth round of talks on Tuesday with representatives of villagers opposing the upcoming Kudankulam nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu.
The Central government committee, appointed to allay the fears of locals about the safety of KNPP in Tamil Nadu, will meet in three weeks to discuss the panel`s responses to the issues raised by protesters and people.
Members of a central team are an exasperated lot after failing to convince a Tamil Nadu government-appointed team that the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) is indeed safe.
Villagers fear for their lives and safety in case of any nuclear accident and the long-term impact the N-plant would have on the population.
The residents of Tamil Nadu’s Kudankulam village have categorically rejected former president APJ Kalam’s stamp of approval for the ambitious nuclear plant being established here.
