Manmohan Singh
New Delhi, Feb 27: Close on the heels of Kudankulam row, the anti-Kudankulam nuclear plant protestors who threatened to sue Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on foreign funds issue may land in trouble as the government seems ready to divulge facts regarding foreign fund's use in the agitation for their food, liquor.

The anti-groups are alleged to have diverted the donations received under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act for health and education purposes.

The local reports revealed that the agitators have received daily food packets and liquor along with Rs 500 a day. "We are ready to reveal the records with the government," claimed the government sources.

However, the People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE) refused the allegation that used any foreign funds to motivate their agitators.

SP Udaykumar, PMANE convenor has claimed that it will file a defamation case against the government for trying to prove that the protestors have used foreign funds.

"We have received certain reports about the NGOs in Tirunelveli and Thuthukudi around the Kudankulam project being funded by organizations from US and Scandinavian countries. This is based on home ministry investigations," MoS in PMO V Narayanasamy said.
