Chennai, Apr 10: Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi lashed out at Sri Lanka, said that Sri Lanka's objection to the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project was not acceptable.

"The Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant did not start yesterday; it has been there for a long time. Today, if Lanka raises doubts about Kudankulam, it is not acceptable. I don't have to tell what the Central government has to do, I'm sure they'll act accordingly," Karunanidhi said.

Karunanidhi's statement came after Colombo raised the issue to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) claiming that the nuclear power plant poses a threat to the Island nation.

"We respect the right of India to have nuclear power stations. But our concerns are on the possible radiation affects they could have on Sri Lanka. We have already written a letter", said Champika Ranawaka, Sri Lanka's power and energy minister.
