The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) is in the final stages of inspection in KKNPP. As soon as they give permission fuel will be immediately loaded, said V Narayanasamy, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, here on Sunday.

Talking to the reporters he said, “The AERB is in the final stages of inspection in KKNPP. Once we receive the permission from them we will immediately start the process of fuel loading. We are expecting the permission within 25 days. We are ready to load the fuel.”

When asked about attacks by the police on KKNPP protesters he said, “We cannot say the attack was vehement. The police did their duty. Some of the agitators did not respect Sec 144. Hence, the police needed to act in order to keep the situation under control.”

He was the chief guest at the All India Union Bank Backward Classes (OBC) Employees Welfare Association’s  5th National Conference. In his address he said, “The Centre has constituted a Parliamentary Committee for OBC. Now we are trying to bring suitable amendments in the National Commission for Backward Classes Act, to extend Constitutional status to NCBC to address the grievances of OBCs. We fought a lot, starting from the recognition of the OBC association and to bring meritorious OBC candidates of all government examinations into the general category instead of placing them in the OBC category in order to bring more OBC candidates under 27 per cent reservation. Unless we are able to fight we will not get justice.”

“I was born in a poor family in a small village. Now I have come to this place because of reservation,” he said. During the conference, members of the association forwarded a demand to the Minister for a Bill to provide 27 per cent reservation for OBCs in promotions as they were inadequately represented. Dravidar Kazhagam chief K Veeramani was also present on the occasion.
