SC moved against Kudankulam plant

September 11th, 2012 - 10:03 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, Sep 11 (IANS) A private company’s employee Tuesday moved the Supreme Court against a Madras High Court order giving the green signal to the commissioning of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu.

It is not yet known when the petition would come up before the apex court.

Petitioner G. Sundarrajan, working with an IT company, claimed that the high court paved the way for starting the plant without ensuring that critical safety features were in place.

He challenged the Aug 31 verdict of the high court and sought an ex-parte interim order restraining the government from going ahead with the initial fuel loading of Unit I and 2 of the Kundankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) in Tirunelveli district.
