Kudankulam nuclear plant-Prime Minister replies to Tarun Vijay

Enquiry against two NGOs opposing

Kudankulam Nuclear Plant-Prime Minister

In a reply to a question raised by Shri. Tarun Vijay (Member of Parliament, National Spokesperson, BJP) today in Rajya Sabha which was as follows

(a) the percentage of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant that has been completed and the total investment on the project till date;

(b) by when does the Government plan to operationalise its various units;

(c) whether Government has evidence of foreign funding of the NGOs protesting against the project at Kudankulam;

(d) if so, the names thereof;

(e) the actions, if any, that have been taken against such NGOs; and

(f) the reasons for the reactor under construction being VVER 1000 type and not VVER 1200, which happens to be a generation ahead of the former from the point of view of safety?

Shri.V. Narayansamy (Minister for Personnel, Public Greviances and Pensions and Prime Minister’s Office) laid the answer on the floor on behalf of Prime Minster.While accepting that the preliminary reports indicate receipt of foreign funds by the NGO’s who are opposing Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant he admitted that investigations have been ordered, though furnishing the details wasn’t feasible at this stage. Whereas CBI enquiry has been ordered against two NGOs and Tamil Nadu Police is investigating criminal cases against two other NGOs. Prime Minister Shri. Manmohan Singh said that overall progress of 97.4% (cumulative of 99.2% in Unit-I and 94.6% in Unit-II) has been made at Kundankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu. Total expenditure on the project till January, 2012 has been Rs.14,326 Crore. PM accepted that projected has been halted due to protest by locals and the groups ideologically opposed to nuclear power. State government has been consulted to resolve the impasse; operationalisation will be worked out after normalisation of the situation. PM further asserted that Kudankulam has safety features at par with those of VVER 1200.

Fratricidal Hindus and caste based hate reasons for their decline in South Asia-Tarun Vijay

4th March 2012-New Delhi

BJP MP and a known RSS ideologue Tarun Vijay’s book launch at International Book Fair, New Delhi created sensation as a highly respected scholar and Hindi litterateur Dr Namvar Singh released it along with another left to the centre giant Dr V.N.Rai, Chancellor of International Gandhi Hindi University, Wardha. Dr Namvar Singh said that he is an avid reader of Tarun Vijay’s columns and wishes him well. Tarun Vijay said that he is grateful to Dr Namvar singh who has shown the Indian path of mutual respect for other view points as ideological differences shouldn’t be turned into enmity and this event has proved the quintessential pluralistic spirit that defines India.

The book launch attracted a huge crowd as a number of top Hindi writers and editors were present including Shri Om Thanvi, Chief Editor, Jansatta , Mr. Prakash Singh, former Director General, BSF, noted poetess Nirmala Jain, author Se Ra Yatri and fans of Tarun Vijay.

The book, containing many controversial chapters was sold out immediately. Tarun Vijay has argued in the book that Inspite of modern Hindus rising phenomenally in education and social status, their political decline in the entire south Asia is mainly due to the caste based discriminations prevailing in society and Hindu double standards and hypocricy.

The book is a collection of essays attacking double standards and the inherent social anomalies amongst the Hindus. It asks why Mirchpurs occur frequently and how come so called Hindu sirens have turned into mere postmen of complaints and record keepers of Hindu woes.

He said that the Hindus are inherently opposed to any kind of extremism, they have been victims of hate and extremist ideologies, but if some elements try to adopt the path of extremism, it will negate and defeat the very idea of Hindutva. The only way to resist assaults is through reforms and consolidation, he said.

The book criticises Hindus for their hypocritical and disjointed responses to the challenges of the modern era. From Kashmir to Kasargod, the Hindu assertions have become unacceptable and are frowned upon. Though Hindus have risen phenomenally in science, technology, wealth creation and political influence individually, their social impact has remained confined to building new fabulous temples and helping their kith and kin rather than eradicating social stigmas of casteism , 'auctions ' of bridegrooms in the marriage 'market', female foeticide and violent opposition to Hindu intercaste marriages .

Tarun Vijay has argued in this book, titled Man Ka Tulsi Chaura ( sacred sapling in the soul's courtyard) published by Vani Prakashan, that the failure of Hindus in accelerating socio-religious reforms through clean and orderly temples , rivers and pilgrim centres, reflecting the spirit of the new Hindu, encouraging Sanskrit , institutionalising studies of the assaults on their soul from various internal and external factors and most importantly ensuring decision making positions to young leaders from scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, has resulted in widening Hindu divisions from within. The social engine sectors like media,apparatus of governance and judiciary have very negligible percentage of the SCs and STs , not representing their real social power and numbers,he has written.

From Pakistan to Bangla Desh and Nepal to Bhutan and Sri Lanka, Hindus are on defensive , population on a decrease and their political clout low unprecedently, Tarun said. And ironically it's the Christian America that comes to help Hindus in these countries rather than any one from India, the book laments.

Therefore rather than complaining about Christians and Muslims, Hindus must look inward,introspect and make corrections, Tarun Vijay says in the book. The hope for Hindus lies in the success of movements like Swaminarayan, Gayatri Pariwar, RSS and Mata Amritanandmayee, the book argues.

This time it's not the Turks and Arabs, but the Hindus themselves who have wrecked the cause of their ilk defeating Hindu political solidarity through backstabbing fraternal forces, the book argues, which attracted a huge crowd at the selling counter on the last day of the Book Fair.
