Mumbai: Locals have threatened to intensify
their agitation against the proposed nuclear power plant at
Jaitapur in Maharashtra`s Ratnagiri district.

As part of the protests, people from 14-15 villages will
court arrest on January 24 and 25, Konkan Vinashkari Prakalp
Virodhi Samiti co-ordinator Satyajit Chavan said here today.

"A model of the nuclear power plant will be buried to
mark the protest," he said.

Students will boycott the flag-hoisting ceremonies at
schools on Republic Day, he added.

Refuting allegations that the agitation was supported by
political parties, Chavan said that villagers were themselves
leading the protests.
