|Over 221,000 people have raised their voice for unlimited liability in the nuclear liability bill. The bill is going to be tabled in the Parliament today.The bill in its revised form lets foreign nuclear suppliers off the hook yet again. It completely ignores the changes suggested by the Standing Committee and supported by the people.
The Prime Minister, keen on clearing this faulty bill, is ignoring the voices of his people.
Check out this video to see what some Greenpeace activists are doing to make him hear properly. Then write to the PM asking him to incorporate supplier liability in the bill.
More and more letters to the Prime Minister will make it difficult for him to ignore the voices against this bill. The Government is trying to appease foreign corporations at the cost of it’s people.
Earlier the Standing Committee had made suggested changes which made the supplier liable for any nuclear accident that took place in the country. But the change made by the Cabinet makes the supplier liable only if it is proved that the nuclear accident was done deliberately. This is quite a contradiction and will help the suppliers get away very easily.
The Government is all set to repeat the mistakes of Bhopal with this bill. They have to be stopped. The PM has to follow the will of the people.
Watch this and write to the PM now.
Thanks a billion!
