You might be following the outrageous episode of PM Office trying to exempt Westinghouse from nuclear liability for Mithi Virdi project, ahead of his US visit.
Even more shameless is the NPCIL statement that it has issued in the aftermath, basically a post-facto justification of its own undermining, saying things would have been same even if the govt were to consult us! The entire nuclear establishment has a record of such complacency and concoctions.
I am sharing with you some very important resources on the issue. Please circulate them widely. Let us intensify this debate and force the government to roll back its surrender before the nuclear lobby.
