NATO wars, nuclear plants and green gas emissions are accelerating the dangerous climate change process, threatening the very existence of humanity.
Nuclear arms and nuked missile operations are the most dangerous phenomenon threatening the very existence of humanity. But nuclear India cares a damn about human safety or climate protection.
Pollution of atmosphere harms the universe, harms the people themselves. Nuclear reactor operations deadly makes the climate change process faster. But in it’s over ambition to make more nukes, further intensifying global nuke race, bold India, on the strength of nuclear terror powers, still refuses to heed the international outcries, let alone popular demand of Indians, and adamant about accelerating regional imbalances with serious implications for humanity survival.
By fooling the people and nation and by misleading the judiciary, among others, India’s arrogant regime has gone ahead to impose one of its “prestigious” nuclear twin terror plants in Kudankulam village in Tamil Nadu , essentially to manufacture nukes but ostensibly for electric generation, knowing full well the deadly risks involved and consequences of such terrorist misadventures when there are other safe techniques for that purpose.
The Supreme Court on October 03 questioned the rationale behind liability wavier to Russia on the dangerous nuclear terror plant disaster issue. The SC asked the Central government to explain whether exempting the Russian manufacturer of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant’s reactor could adversely cost India’s exchequer and tax payers in the event of a tragedy taking place because of faulty reactor.
Supreme court earlier had refused to stay the loading of fuel in the plant but had agreed to examine the risk associated with the project. The court was hearing pleas by social activists G Sundarrajan and others for restraining the government from commissioning the plant. Madras high court decision earlier to allow KNPP to commission work was erroneous. .
Kudankulam petitioner’s counsel Prashant Bhushan argued that commissioning the plant without 17 safety measures recommended by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) could spell doom if a tragedy struck the plant. Bhushan also brought to the apex court’s notice about the nuclear liability law and alleged that the exemption to Russian manufacturer of any liability was in breach of the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damages Act, 2010.
Although the India regime tactfully hid the truth about population living in the locality, a large number of people do live around Kudankulam terror plant and they would face grave risk to their health and life if the nuclear installation went critical without the 17 safety measures being implemented. Bhushan requested the court to take an undertaking from the Centre not to commission the nuclear plant till a decision was pronounced on the petition. But the court referred to the ‘Jal Yatra’ protests and said, “It is not so easy to commission the plant.”
State lies are dangerous and Indian regime is known for telling cold lies. Clearly, the KKNPP suffers from several serious issues that need to be resolved before the plant can be commissioned. Lakhs of people living in the vicinity of the plant are bound to be apprehensive in such a situation. Instead of dealing with these issues and addressing the concerns in a meaningful way, the government has launched a wave of repression and has slapped 8,000 sedition cases against peaceful protesters. The safety measures recommended by the Atomic Energy Regulation Board have not been put in place by nuclear plant promoters and Indian government agencies have not determined till date the site for storing spent nuclear fuel.
After last year’s nuclear disaster in Fukushima in Japan, the AERB had recommended 17 safety measures for the plant but the plant operator adopted only six of them. Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited, which operates the plant, had earlier, as a usual way of falsely assuring safety, said the plant has been so designed that it can withstand natural events like earthquake; tsunami etc and even in case of terrorist attack, the structure would not release radioactive rays in public domain.
Indian regime and nuclear agents play with lives of people.
Nuclear plants can never be safe. The Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant suffers from lack of safety measures and is plagued by several other “serious issues”. It must not be commissioned till they are resolved. Commissioning of the nuclear plant amidst the populations in Kudankulam forcefully is not the correct approach of the govt as it faulty and
done or hasty decisions. The court of law can very well establish the truth, rather than bashing through the media which does not carry any credentials.
Both Manmohan and Jayalalitha governments have in fact terrorized the Kudankulam people.The Manmohan regime has misled the honourable Supreme court by boldly telling blatant lies about locality people and safety measures. Manmohan regime told the courts that nobody lives in Kudankulam village and as such when nucleardisaster takes place none would be killed. The courts, as being fooled by the regime with lies, mistakenly allowed the regime to restart the fuelling process obviously to target the masses.
Tamilnadu ADMK government of film actress Jayalalithaa prompted by central regime has attacked the protestors, causing death injuries and filed false cases against them. Earlier she supported the popular strikes and asked the Manmohan regime to shut down the nuclear plant. But later, under duress, she caved in. She is facing serious corruption cases in courts and she needs the centre help. For her, her own skin is more important than the lives of ordinary people.
So much for the concern of governments and politicians for the people and nation!
People of Kudankulam have meanwhile have appealed to West Bengali chief-minster and anti-nuke supporter Mamata Banerjee to take up the Kudankulam issue with central government and make the arrogant Manmohan regime of mafias to revise its terror intent, wind down the nuclear terror project and save the lives and health of people. Mamata has already rejected the Indo-Russia agenda of imposing a nuclear plant on Bengali soil. Having its ugly face, the corrupt regime is now bent upon restarting the nuclear terror plant in Kudankulam.
In order to conveniently proliferate its pet nuclear terror agenda, Indian nuke agents, including central ministers, say nuclear plants in India cannot blast like the Japanese ones. Manmohan regime is ruing justify their attack and people of Kudankulam, killing two and terrorizing one and all. The regime in order to somehow preserve secret nuke deals with Russia and other nuclear rogues and save the nuclear terror project must have bribed quite a lot of agencies to promote nuclearism and target the anti-nuclear movement.
Russia has clearly stated it would not take any liability risk with the Kudankulam terror plant and the risks involved entirely rest with Indian regime and people.
Sri Lanka has sternly opposed the nuclear project for dangers like radiation menace.
Through its nuclear terror projects the Manmohan regime only is helping many mafias, including the Congress-BJP men, in making quick money as mediators and agents at the cost of human lives by impending nuclear tragedy.
India has killed people in Kudankulam and terrorized the people there. It must opt for non-nuclear routes for electricity and give up petrified nuclear mindset and nuke over-ambitions, because that is too dangerous for the people.
India must quickly wind down the notorious Kudankulam project so that people could resume their normal life.
People of Kudankulam continue to strike and are thus suffering. Sympathy and solidarity are very important and fine but they need financial help.. They are helpless humans targeted by a mighty nuke regime. In order to antagonize Tamil people against Kudankulam people Manmohan and his nuclear agents in his cabinet earlier had fluffed that USA is funding them. That is the crudest part of Indian regime joke.
Indian regime has wasted huge resources on nuclear deals. Indian regime is free to tell blatant lies to discredit the movement and save its own skins.
National regimes are duty-bound and must protect the peoples!
Under the roguish state nature conditions, hon. Supreme Court alone can now bring solace and peace to Kudankulam people by imposing forced closure of nuclear terror plant, if possible, within 24 hours.
Dismantle the Kudankulam nuclear plants and let people live in safety and peace. End nuclear drives. There cannot be better wisdom than abandoning the nuclear route for progress.
