State flayed for delaying Kudankulam nuclear plant
The Bharathiya Janata Party (BJP) will contest the Sankarankoil by-poll, said its state president Pon Radhakrishnan here on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters, he said that their members are filing papers with the party leaders, and soon, the name of the candidate would be announced.
“We will go to the people and expose the wrongs of the Dravidian parties, which had ruled the state for the last 44 years,” he added.
The power scenario in the State is threatening to touch an all time high that many parts are engulfed in darkness.
Though the AIADMK had promised to do good, if elected to power, within 100 days, many months have gone, but still the government seems to be not keen on switching on the Kudankulam nuclear plant. Just because some small section of people opposed it, the rulers should not hesitate. In the larger interest of the people of Tamil Nadu, the government should take firm decision by helping the authorities to commission the plant. Further, the State should seek more share from the power generated, Mr. Radhakrishnan demanded.
Regarding news of students committing crimes in campuses, he said that it only showed that all is not well. The government and education department should re-introduce moral classes.
The students should be taught to respect teachers (Guru) and they (teachers) should also understand the pressures faced by the children and guide them properly. “When we have high hopes for our children as the future of India, our campuses should remain peaceful,” he said.
The BJP leader said that through out Tamil Nadu, the party had proposed to stage demonstration to draw the attention of the government on the prevailing power scenario by holding candles and torch lights on February 27 at 6 p.m.
The state conference of the BJP is to be held in Madurai in April, in which national leaders are expected to participate, he added.
