APJ Abdul Khalam, former president’s sudden love for Koodamkulam natives suggesting 200 crore rupee package shows his metamorphosis as an astute politician. The other day he was eloquent in declaring that the Koodamkulam nuclear plant is absolutely safe. How much he now concerned about the backwardness of Koodamkulam area? Where was he all these years? He became aware of Koodamkulam’s backwardness only today? The package is obviously to lure the people of Koodamkulam who are on an agitation against the nuclear plant.
Only Indians loyal to the US business interest will say that nuclear plants are safe. They themselves know well that the Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disasters may happen to Indian plants also. It is also known that United States have not commissioned any nuclear plant for the last many years.Everybody knows there is no absolute safety for any nuclear plant and it will be a perennial threat to humanity.
Still they want nuclear plants.
