Stop the Koodankulam NPP Expansion Now!: PMANE's Statement on Modi-Putin
Nuclear Tango | DiaNuke.org

S.P. Udayakumar | We strongly condemn the video-conferencing gimmicks of
these two leaders and their respective governments. We demand that they
stop the Koodankulam expansion right away and take the people of India
(especially the people of Tamil Nadu and Kerala) into confidence by sharing
the Site Evaluation Report, Safety Analysis Report, Emergency Preparedness
Report and all other public documents with regards to the first two
reactors and the expansion programs before they go ahead with their
authoritarian and undemocratic nuclear power project.

Stop the Koodankulam NPP Expansion Now!: PMANE’s Statement on Modi-Putin
Nuclear Tango

Press Release | October 14, 2016

It has just been announced that the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi
and the Russian President Mr. Valdimir Putin will do the “Base Concreting
Work” for the Koodankulam nuclear power plant units 3 and 4 at 1:05 pm on
October 15, 2016, Saturday through video-conferencing. It may be remembered
that these two leaders dedicated the first unit to the nation a few months
back through video conferencing. But the same first reactor is going to be
shut down again in December this year for two months for re-fuelling. It
must be noted that the same unit was shut down for seven months for
re-fuelling earlier this year. The point here is that the first two units
of the Koodankulam nuclear power project are sub-standard, unsafe and
unviable. In order to hide their complete failure with them, the Indian and
Russian governments are doing another gimmick in the name of “Base
Concreting Work” even before they undertake the first pour of concrete in
the first quarter of 2017.

Since Mr. Putin is here in Goa, India, he could have easily gone to
Koodankulam along with Mr. Modi and do this masonry job physically at the
auspicious time they have chosen. All these video-conference dedication and
video-conference concreting show that their product is defective and that
they are afraid to meet the people.
These two leaders must tell the people of India what liability arrangements
they have done for the first two reactors at Koodankulam. They should also
explain to the people of India why reactors 3 and 4 cost almost double the
amount of the first two reactors without incorporating any supplier
liability. Furthermore they should explain to the Indian what they are
going to do with the spent-fuel and nuclear waste that come from the
Koodankulam project.

We strongly condemn the video-conferencing gimmicks of these two leaders
and their respective governments. We demand that they stop the Koodankulam
expansion right away and take the people of India (especially the people of
Tamil Nadu and Kerala) into confidence by sharing the Site Evaluation
Report, Safety Analysis Report, Emergency Preparedness Report and all other
public documents with regards to the first two reactors and the expansion
programs before they go ahead with their authoritarian and undemocratic
nuclear power project.
