Members of Anti-Nuke People Solidarity Movement staged a protest in the city on Sunday to express their solidarity to the people of Koodankulam in Tamil Nadu who are protesting against the nuclear plant there.

As many as 200 civil society members who gathered at Town Hall, urged the Union government to stop pumping fuel to the nuclear plant.

Speaking to reporters,  treasurer of People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), Bangalore, Gouru Chinnappa said, “People are angry at the Union government’s decision of fuel pumping to the nuclear station. This will harm the fauna at sea level. The government is insensitive. Instead of putting brakes on corruption, they are taking up such projects.”

Lashing out at the government,  Janajagrithi Andolana member Narashima Murthy T said, “The poor fishermen are suffering at Koodankulam. To attract the attention and a positive reaction from the Union government, they even took to the sea, but its has not showed any results. The people of Karnataka condemn and extend their support to the locals there.”
