Leaders of People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE) met Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan and sought his support for opposing the planned Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant units three and four. They also brought the observations made by the Supreme Court to the attention of the veteran leader.

The PMANE leaders also requested Achuthanandan to oppose the neutrino project which was being planned in Thevaram, Theni district, Tamil Nadu.

The PMANE leaders said that Achuthanandan heard them with patience and expressed his support to both the anti-Koodankulam and anti-neutrino campaigns. The leaders included S P Udayakumar, M P Jesuraj, Peter Milton and Antony Kebiston.

The People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy  leaders also met Thiruvananthapuram Archbishop Soosai Pakiam and sought his support for the anti-Koodankulam struggle.

“The Election Commission of India has relaxed the code of conduct and has given permission to the Government of India to sign an agreement with Russia for the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP) units three and four.

The undue haste of the Central Government and its Department of Atomic Energy in signing the agreement during the national election time gives rise to fears and suspicions of possible foul play,” the leaders said.

“There are speculations that the KKNPP one and two are complete failures and the Central Government has not yet dedicated the project to the nation.

The KKNPP unit one has not begun commercial production yet. There is every possibility that the incumbent government is trying to help the Russian Government and companies which safeguard their profits at the cost of Indian people’s welfare and security,” a statement issued by the eople’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy said.
