Govt. neglected lives in India, experts say
Saturday, July 03, 2010 12:24:35 PM, UNI
Visakhapatnam: The governments in India have neglected number of lives in and the attitude itself is erroneous, renowned Nuclear scientist and activist Surendra Gadekar alleged.
There were many occasions in which he drew attention of the government and its agencies to the impending threats due to ventures like uranium mining and Nuclear power plants but they all proved futile, Dr Gadekar pointed out during a meet, organised by the 100-month Climate Protection Movement.
Citing examples from the studies he had taken up in various mining areas, he said the basic safeguards were ignored and miners and their families were being exposed to untold dangers.
Forum for Better Visakhapatnam convenor E A S Sharma, said the Indo-US Nuclear deal wouldnt save India from energy problems and such ventures would only prove detrimental to the welfare of the people.
He said proposed Nuclear power plant, set up at Kovvada in Srikakulam district, was only a disaster and would devastate not only the region and the state but nearby states like Chhattisgarh and Orissa also.
He said 'grama sabhas' were nothing but a farce in which people's voice bought by the companies with ulterior motives.
