Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant and protest What is the truth-

The Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant will be a feather in our country’s cap once it is in operation. The plant will be playing a great role in eliminating the power scarcity in most of the rural areas in our nation. But there have been continuous protests against the plant’s operation by the local people. There are a few reasons for this.
