Anti-nuke activist to fight polls on AAP ticket
Anti-nuclear activist SP Udayakumar is all set to contest the 2014 Lok Sabha elections on a Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ticket.
Udayakumar said that the AAP will make an official announcement soon and that he is likely to contest from either Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli or Tuticorin.
The activist told media that he agreed to fight elections on an AAP ticket only after the party made its nuclear policy clear.
The AAP reportedly told him that the people residing in the affected areas must have the last say in deciding the nuclear policy.
Udayakumar has played an active role in opposing the Kudankulam nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu.
