Posted on Jan 29, 07:18PM | UNI

Chennai, Jan 28 : The People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), which has been spearheading an agitation against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP), today accused the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) of ducking and dodging in making public the basic reports about the project

In a statement here, the PMANE said quoting Marcellus remarks in Shakespear's Hamlet, said, "we, the people of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, who have been fighting against the KKNPP are feeling very much like Marcellus." "We have been asking in vain for the basic reports on the project. Even after the Central Information Commissioner (CIC) had passed an order to share the reports with the public, the NPCIL has been ducking and dodging," it said

The PMANE said, "we have been asking several important and pertinent questions about the design of the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) in KKNPP, availability of sufficient fresh water for cooling and other purposes, disaster preparedness, liability arrangements, waste management, decommissioning plans, impact of reactors and desalination plants on our sea and seafood and the livelihood of our fishermen and farmers."

"But none of these issues has been addressed in a truthful, responsible, sensitive and sensible manner," it added
