'Koodankulam plant could power up TN'
Supporting the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant,
members of the Congress’s Chennai districts held a demonstration on October 3. They played the electricity card, raising questions over whether the protestors did not want electricity for their homes.
The power situation in TN is already in a bad state. If Tamil Nadu want to give up nuclear power, we will have to start a new search to find new sources of energy. Tamil Nadu will remain dark, said Tiru-nelveli MP S S Ramasubbu.
Senior Congress leader Kumari Anandan spoke of how a number of scientific advancements, which are now considered basic, met with opposition when they were introduced. The CPM, meanwhile, called for an independent expert committee to look into the safety aspects of the plant.
