Hi Rajeev Srinivasan,
Profit comes before public safety for our government. They have signed a pact with France to get faulty nuclear reactors from their nuclear corporation Areva, which has a track record of causing nuclear contamination..
This plant is coming up in Maharastra's Ratnagiri district and is being opposed by people across the region and the country. The location for this reactor is on a high earthquake zone which has been ignored by the environmental impact assessment. This raises concerns about the safety of people around the plant.
After all this, the government is still getting this untested technology and undermining the safety of its people. Over 28,000 people including me have already signed a petition asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to place lives of people before profit. More signatures on this petition will add strength to the opposition and help put pressure on the PM to take some action.
Can you also add your signature to this petition?
The petition says: Put Indian lives above foreign profits -- Stop the import of dangerous nuclear reactors to Maharashtra.
