HYDERABAD: The catastrophic effects on environment from the proposed thermal power plant at Sompeta in Srikakulam district where two persons were killed in police firing on agitators last week were highlighted at a meeting organised by the Communist Party of India (CPI) with political parties on Thursday.
Babu Rao, an environmentalist, explained that the carbon dioxide emission from fossil fuels remain in air even after a century. In these circumstances, he expressed apprehensions about safety to environment from the proposed thermal plants with a capacity of 12,260 MW in Nellore district alone. The Sompeta Environment Protection Committee leader T. Rama Rao said the site where the plant was proposed in Sompeta was a 4,000-acre tank on which thousands of fishermen depended for livelihood.
