We have been listening news about KNPP that many NGO’s opposing the KNP Plant citing security concerns over Nuke plant. After Fukushima Disaster in 2011 some NGO’s started protesting against KNPP saying the same will be happen with the kudankulam plant, even after many scientists have checked the plant for flaws and they said there is no need to concern about safety of the plant, the protests continued. There also a rumor that these NGO’s are funded by western countries who are against Indo-Rus Bond.
