THRISSUR: The remarks of Prime Minister on the NGOs that are opposing the Kundankulam nuclear plant seems to have irked social activist Medha Patkar.
She said that the ‘PM’s perspective and vision is distorted and perverted’.
The PM had said that NGOs opposing nuclear plant were getting support from abroad.
Patkar, who was in Thrissur to inaugurate the People’s Parliament of Rashtra Dal, said that if the state could receive technologies and materials from foreign countries, why could not NGOs that were supporting people’s movement do that.
“The State has no moral right to question receiving foreign funds by NGOs. But, Narmada Bachao Andolan and National Alliance of People’s Movements do not receive foreign funds,” she added.
