Supreme Court’s Order on the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant

I think this is the greatest problem faced by our state and the government is unable to take any situation as their is huge opposition from the public at kudakulam. I think that the people would quit the movement and pave way for the government to start the plant for the development of mankind.
It is an anti democratic, anti social and anti economic agitation made by Dr. Udhayakumar and team whom they would not like the prosperous of our Indian nation, hope they ignore and neglect the importance of electricity which is a boon for the prosperity of any nation. Democracy is attributed differently by these people, hence they should be severely treated. The people who like the growth of our Indian nation should come forward against the anti KKNPP. The voice of the supporters of KKNPP is not given importance by the media. Media should act with Justice as it articulates to all the masses.Fourteen thousand crores is our money, people should have the awareness and conscience in the usage of public money. Hence I advice to all the well-wishers of our nation to go against the anti KKNPP.
