The action committee of people living within the radius of 5 km from the Kaiga Nuclear Power Station called off its 104-day-old dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office here on Saturday.

The activists said that the government should fulfil their demand. Maruthi Manpade, State president of Karnataka Pranta Raitha Sangha, said that the State and Union governments had taken note of the agitation.

Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda had promised the sangha that he would convince the Union government of the problems of the people.

Leaders Shantaram Nayak, Shyamanath Naik, and Yamuna Gaonkar said that they would stage dharna in front of the Parliament complex in Delhi if the problems were not solved.

The leaders thanked the organisations that supported their cause.

People of Sulagar, Balemane, Hartuga, Kuchegar, and Virje, which are within the 5-km radius of the Kaiga Nuclear Power Station, were present.
