KARACHI: The construction work on the twin nuclear power plant project is moving forward with absolute disregard for the safety and well-being of 20 million people who live in Karachi. Further construction on the project must be halted, says a press statement jointly released by civil society organisations and human rights activists on Friday.

The federal and Sindh governments, it says, have failed to consider the serious risks posed by these nuclear power plants, which included a potentially devastating nuclear accident.
