Nuclear waste from the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) will not be stored in Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) in Karnataka, said Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office V. Narayanasamy here Saturday.

Queried by reporters about Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd. (NPCIL) planning to store the nuclear waste from KNPP in KGF, Narayanasamy refuted claims that the waste would be sent to Kolar Gold Fields. 

Citing discussions with K.H. Muniyappa, member of the Lok Sabha representing Kolar, and also with officials of his department, Narayanasamy stressed that nuclear waste would not be taken to Kolar. 

The People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), which is protesting the setting up of two 1,000 MW nuclear power units at Kudankulam in Tirunelveli district in Tamil Nadu, around 650 km from here, has charged that the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) has not shared basic information on storage of spent fuel from KNPP at KGF.
