Actor and Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan wants to support the protests against proposed uranium mining in the Nallamalla forest area in Nagarkurnool district of Telangana.While remaining silent even as uranium mining by UCIL has posed environment issues in Kadapa Pawan Kalyan said uranium mining would affect biodiversity and harm the environment.

People of both Telugu states will be affected as there is a real danger of the krishna river waters getting polluted. There could be high risk to pregnant mothers exposed to uranium mining ill-effects, he said. District , he is keen to take up the cause in neighbouring Telangana state ,why ask his critics in TRS.

On Monday, there was a complete shut down in Amrabad and Padara mandals of Nagarkurnool. Protestors even blocked the Hyderabad-Srisailam highway as part of a protest backed by the joint action committee of the Congress and Left parties.

About 70,000 people living in 48 villages in both these mandals fear that they will be affected by the proposed mining activity. Amrabad mandal is also home to a tiger reserve which has 22 tigers and hundred leopards.

Protestors are demanding that clearances given for the project should be immediately withdrawn by the Centre and also the state. His joining hands with the congress party has angered both TRS,YSRC and the TDP but Pavan was perhaps looking for  political advantage and survival by taking some public issues.

Pawan Kalyan said an all-party round table conference would be organised shortly to discuss the issue and chalk out a strategy of protests to stop the proposed mining as there was evidence of the harm it can cause from examples of chenchu tribals and also people of kadapa and Jharkhand.
