Chennai: As per the press release, Text of the D.O. letter addressed to Dr. Manmohan Singh, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India by Selvi J Jayalalithaa, Hon’ble Chief Minister of
Tamil Nadu on 31.3.2012 is reproduced below:
“As you are aware, the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant comprises
two Units of 1000 MW each. The total generation capacity of the two Units
is 2000 MW out of which Tamil Nadu has been allocated a share of
925 MW only. In this context, I would like to recall that I had already
made a request for allocation of 1000 MW from the Central Pool last year
against which a mere 100 MW was made available to Tamil Nadu.
Tamil Nadu is facing a severe power shortage and it would therefore
be proper and justifiable that the entire power to be generated from the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant is made available to Tamil Nadu. This is
also inevitable as the transmission corridor congestion problem still continues and has also been brought to your notice.
I hope that this request will be positively considered by you.
May I also reiterate that we require and deserve this power? Rest assured Sir, of my continued co-operation.”
