Indian villagers continue to protest against nuclear plant project


14:38, September 10, 2012

MUMBAI, Sept. 10 (Xinhua)-- Villagers in India's southern state of Tamil Nadu have renewed their protest against a newly built nuclear plant on Monday, demanding to halt the loading of nuclear fuel in the reactors, which is likely to get done over the next few days, according to local TV channel TIMES NOW.

In recent days, villagers in Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu have tried to block the operation of the nuclear plant. They tried to march to the plant, but were stopped by the police. The villagers now plan to take the coastal route to lay siege to the plant.

There was fierce intension between people from Idinthakarai village, which is barely a kilometer away from the back side of the Kudankulam nuclear plant, and police at the coastline of the village. The police asked the crowd to disperse but the crowd was not ready to budge until their demands were met.

"We are appealing to the government of Tamil Nadu and the government of India to respect local people's sentiments and abandon the whole project. We will not engage in any kind of violent activity," said activist Udayakumar.

The Madras High Court gave its nod to the plant and Atomic Energy Regulatory Board authorities will visit the plant next week to give the final approval.
