‘Going by the experience of Chernobyl and Fukoshima, India should tread warily’
India has stopped taking its own decisions. Other countries are deciding what is good for our country. We are governed by somebody outside our boundaries, former Chief of Naval Staff Admiral (retd) L. Ramdas said at a seminar organised against setting up of nuclear power plant at Kovvada in Srikakulam district, here on Sunday. He said that authorities were turning authoritarian by branding those opposing Government policy as anti-nationals and enemies of State. This was defeating the true spirit of democracy, he said and referred to the agitation in Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu. He criticised the Centre for forcefully acquiring land from Dalits and Adivasis by antiquated colonial laws.
