UP Governor Ram Naik met Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday to discuss various state issues, including recent flood situation. The meet was the first one since Naik took over as UP Governor a month back and was termed as “courtesy call”.
During the meeting, Naik also discussed problems of leprosy-affected people and requested that recommendations of parliamentary committee on his petition in 2007 should be implemented. In the past, Naik has been the chairman of International Leprosy Union. Naik, who hails from Maharastra, also took up the cause of rehabilitation of families affected by Tarapur Nuclear Energy project.
“Since the Department of Nuclear Energy is with the Prime Minister, the Governor also spoke for rehabilitation of the 1,250 families of two villages of Tarapur Maharashtra, who are mainly fishermen, farmers and adivasis,” the official spokesperson of UP Governor house said, adding that a case regarding Nuclear Energy Project, Tarapur, is pending in Mumbai High Court since past 10 years.
