Tollywood celebrities are joining the protest against the sanctions of uranium digging in reserved Nallamala forests. They are raising their voice against the government’s plan to mine uranium in the Nallamala forest near Amrabad in Telangana. 

After Sekhar Kammula and Pawan Kalyan, actor Vijay Devarakonda also has joined the chorus to raise his voice against the plan. 

“20,000 acres of Nallamala at Risk of being destroyed. We have destroyed our lakes, flooded our states, caused drought in others, polluted most of our drinking water sources. The quality of our air is deteriorating everywhere, while multiple cities are running out of the water, to drink, brush, shower, wash, everything. And we continue to justify destroying any small good that is left. Next in line are the lush green Nallamala forests,” he lamented.

Continuing his condemnation further, Vijay Deverakonda adds, “If all you want is nonrenewable source like Uranium -buy it.. Uranium konokovachu - Forests konnocha? If we can't afford it, develop renewable solar energy, put solar panels on every rooftop, make it compulsory. For anyone trying to justify it - WTF will we do with Uranium and electricity when we don't have breathable air and drinkable water. #SaveNallamalla.”

Vijay Deverakonda is born and brought up in the region of Nallamala.
