    Yeah pretty weird nai?

    @Dinu, the govt should allow. We need more clean sources of energy and the private industry should get into it. Why should the govt take all the trouble of generating all the power by themselves?

    @Nova, weird? i dont think so. Reliance is an energy company and its natural to diversify. They started off selling clothes, then moved to textiles, pertrochemicals, energy, IT, internet and now nuclear is only natural.
