Kudankulam activists clarify, they have nothing to do with the Blast

Anti-nuclear activists at Kudankulam have clarified that they have nothing to do with the Tuesday blast in a village in the Kudankulam district of Tamil Nadu. There occurred a blast at a house in the Tsunami Colony, which is 1.5 kms away from Idinthakarai village. There has been a vehement rivalry between two groups belonging to the Koothenkuzhy village over the sea sand mining issue there. When the sand mafia drove many of the people out of Koothenkuzhy, they had taken refuge in the neighbouring villages. When the group in Idinthakarai had tried to make country bombs, the Idinthakarai Village Committee did ask them to leave the village. However, some people had stayed back with their families in the Tsunami Colony doing fishing. Several families chose to stay because of their children’s education and for protection of pregnant women. Some of these men’s misadventure must have resulted in the blast on November 26, 2013.
