    TRICHY: People from 20 villages in Pudukkottai on Friday staged a protest against the hydrocarbon project mooted by the Union government in Pudukkottai and Karaikal districts.

    It all started a few days ago when villagers found oil oozing out of bore wells dug by ONGC. According to the villagers, bore wells were dug across Neduvasal, Kallikollai, Vanakkankadu Karukkakurichi and Kottaikadu. However, there were no developments in the successive years.

    "Oil oozing out of a bore well in Vanakkankadu village has been polluting agricultural lands following which villagers are panicked over losing their livelihood," said Rajakumaran, a youth from Pudukkottai, who participatd in the agitation. Until the government announces scrapping of the project, we will go on an indefinite protest, he said.

    "Apart from the villages where bore wells were dug, the adjoining villages too have expressed solidarity and are likely to join the protests," said S Shanmugam, a student agitator from H H Rajahs College, Pudukkottai.

    Following protests by villagers at Neduvasal a couple of days ago, students of H H Rajahs College shunned classes and staged a protest on Tuesday .

    Following this, students from government arts college, Kumbakonam, came out agitating against the hydrocarbon project on Friday. Advocates from Pudukkottai District Court stayed away from the court expressing solidarity to the protesters.

    India's master plan for Tamilnadu - Make Tamilnadu dependent upon Hindia by destroying TN's natural resources by :

    Stopping water to Tamilnadu by building dams in Indian states , neighboring Tamilnadu. Turn Tamilnadu into a desert , kill Tamilnadu farmers and exploit their land for gas extraction

    Already Tamils have lost their culture , identity under Hindian occupation, now they are set to loose their land

    The Delhi based union government machinery is heavily in favour of northern India. There should be a balance. Why not select Nagpur or may be even a new nation capital at Maharashtra's Vidharbha region which is almost central part of India? Why not stopping the North Indian Hindutva and Hindi fanatics from taking over India by this move? This way south India can also enjoy better governance. Shifting official language to English and stopping Hindi imposition are also good steps.

    Kerala has no problem in being part of Indian union. Kerala and south, south west India all benefit if a central capital realises. Does this also sounds anti-national for Sanghis? Also learn that Kerala has no separatist nationalism unlike Tamilnadu. Like Punjab, like Kashmir, Tamilnadu has a nationalism which is still ignited occassionally. Union government must address some ways to balance the state to state and state to centre relations. As a good step, banning Hindutva terror groups like RSS and stopping enforcement of Hindi can generate much goodwill. Remember that India is not people around Ganga. OK ?

    did not the mad king tried this already... resulting in thousands of death and misery?
    south india has better governance already... and even if you move capital to nagpur, it will be still dominated by people who send highest number of MPs...

    looks like a poorly photoshopped image.

    You are not making any sense here

    Instead you are going around in circles

    And why Nagpur ; why NOT TRIVANDRUM

    Does Nagpur have the space for a Capital

    How much time and money it takes to MAKE a capital
    ANY idea what so ever

    And your concepts of Centre State Relations are abysmally Poor

    India's governance system is Run by the Constitution
    NOT by a Place

    Whether the capital is Delhi or Kanya Kumari
    the constitution will remain the same

    And Indian Parliament will also have the SAME number of MPs

    So Hindi Belt will keep sending these large number of MPs

    Your Insecurity is LAUGHABLE to say the least

    I have never seen any other South Indian make such a STUPID demand
