JayalalithaaThe agitation against the Kudankulam nuclear power plant which resumed on Tuesdayafter two day's break is all set to vitiate the Centre-state relations. The agitators got a shot in the arm with Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa issuing a statement blaming the Union government's inaction for the stalemate in the works related to the nuclear power plant. She also declared that her government "is determined to put on hold the work on the power project till people's fears are allayed". She said the Centre has done nothing to resolve the imbroglio.

No senior scientists could enter the KNPP premises on Tuesday since the district administration is tight-lipped about the law and order situation. "We could not go inside the KNPP because of the agitation. We are waiting for clearance from the police," said NK Balaji, project director, KNPP. He said a team of hundred technicians are attending to emergency works in the reactor. Balaji and his team of scientists and engineers did not move out of their houses since they did not get the green signal from the police.

Jayalalithaa alleged that V Narayanaswamy, minister of state in the PMO, is trying to politicise the issue instead of helping to resolve the issue.

The chief minister is already upset over the Centre's inaction to her requests for funds to set up solar power plants to address the severe power shortage in the state as well as the attacks on the Tamil Nadu fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy.

Immediately after assuming office, Jayalalithaa had called on Manmohan Singh with the request for a special financial package to the state, to which she has not received any response.She charged that though the prime minister has claimed through media that he has written to her on the KNPP issue, she was yet to get any letter from him.

The People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy, which is spearheading the agitation, had given a day's break to the thousands of activists sitting in protest at the project site on Monday so that they could cast their votes in the elections to the local bodies.

Earlier in the day, DMK president M Karunanidhi pitched in with his share of criticism by alleging that Jayalalithaa was playing a double game with respect to the Kudankulam plant. He expressed his willingness to help the prime minister in resolving the stalemate.
