Mar 06, Colombo: Environmentalists and activists in Sri Lanka have commenced agitating against the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

Hundreds of activists of the environmentalist group Greens4change held a protest in front of the Indian High Commission, against the nuclear power plant.

The environmentalists demanded India to stop building the nuclear power plant to protect the people and environment.

Holding banners that read, "Millions of lives are in danger - Stop Kudankulam nuke plant," the group charged that there is a uranium leak from the nuclear plant placing both Sri Lankans and South Indians in danger.
