New Delhi, Nov 10 (): Making a proclamation that Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP) will probably be starting its power generation from the month of December, in which Tamil Nadu will be receiving the first tranche of entire 1,000 MW of power, Union minister V Narayanasamy stated that the plant has been fed with enrich uranium and the lid has also been closed.

“Mostly by the end of this month or in the first week of next month, the whole problem will come to a conclusion. The vessel which is being pressurized will go for a trial for twenty days after which the production will be starting, “said the minister to reporters in New Delhi.

Responding to the letters sent by the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, expressing deep concern over power shortage, the Minister said  “entire 1,000 MW has been planned to be provided to the state.”

The minister also said that the Tamil Nadu government has been encouraging the central government throughout the process by extending its support and safeguarding the plant which was largely protested by the anti-KKNPP agitators who created great problem in launching the plant.

After the DMK government who supported the centre when the project was started, the AIADMK is also showing similar response due to which the plant has reached the final stage, assumed Mr Narayanasamy. The minister expressed his happiness for the support of both DMK and AIADMK government in developing the KKNPP project.

Reacting on an earlier media report which said that the minister declared that the DMK who was providing support to the central government over the KKNPP, later refused to support the centre to which the Mr Narayanasamy said that a number of people have attempted to divide the DMK and the Congress and now the media is repeating.

We need such cooperation from the state government in implementing the nuclear project which the Tamil Nadu government has been doing, said the union minister.
