Claiming that the contamination of drinking water at Kaiga nuclear plant was a matter of “serious concern” as it involved some “disgruntled scientists” and not any outside enemy, BJP on Tuesday urged the government to redress grievances of such scientists.

“There is need for more seriousness on this issue as it involved some disgruntled scientist. It is a matter of serious concern as he is in there, unlike a terrorist who would come from outside,” Deputy Leader of BJP in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said.

She appealed to the government to take measures to deal with the reasons for the “dissatisfaction among scientists” to prevent such incidents.

The drinking water in a cooler at Kaiga nuclear power plant in Karnataka was contaminated with Tritium on Saturday, affecting the health of some employees. Investigators and Kaiga power plant authorities suspect the involvement of some insider in the case.
