Nuclear power plant is the only option we have for future given the cheap source and low pollution.. Nuclear is also safe technology now, Chernobyl will never happen with the present safety features, Fukushima is also unlikely given bangladesh does not fall in earthquake zone...
3mile island was really not catastrophic, the power plants safety feature did work and shut down the plant the way it was meant to.
There is no doubt that we need to go for Neuclear power generation and it's safe and clean too. Although the potential risk factor, in case of a disaster is bigger. My point is, if we are taking a risk, why not make it worth taking the risk, but making a reasonable size in terms of output.
According to government plan, they need to generate another 5000 MW in next 6 years. And all sorts of corruption and mismanagement is going on with those, like rental, contracts without even a tenders etc etc..... SEE NEWS
@OW, You probably told the actual things what's going to happen...
