‘TN will get major share of Kudankulam nuclear power’

Joining issue with chief minister J Jayalalithaa who blamed the Centre for energy shortfall faced by Tamil Nadu, union minister of state for commerce and industry EM Sudarsana Natchiappan on Wednesday asserted that adequate power has been ensured to the state by the Centre.

The Centre was providing adequate power from the Central grid as and when it was required by the state government and would provide major share of energy produced from Kudankulam nuclear plant, he told reporters.

‘As per the demand from State government, we will try our best to allocate majority of the power produced from Kudankulam plant’, he said answering queries from reporters who drew his attention to a letter written by Jayalalithaa to the Prime Minister yesterday accusing that Centre was responsible for shortage of 2500 mws of energy in Tamil Nadu.

‘At the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, the nuclear power reactors are expected to produce 1,000MW by 15 December. We will give the majority of the power produced to Tamil Nadu once it begins producing that much amount of power’, he said.
