Mumbai: A day after Japan declared nuclear
emergency and closed its atomic power plant following
devastating earthquake, Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray warned Maharashtra government over Jaitapur nuclear
power project proposed in the Konkan region.

Japan had to declare nuclear emergency after the
earthquake and tsunami hit the country. But the state
government here is preparing to set up a nuclear power plant,
Thackeray said while addressing a meeting of people affected
by the proposed plant.
Reiterating his opposition to the project, Thackeray
said he would fight for the locals.
"I want the issue to be solved peacefully. But if anyone
(govt) uses force, the protest would be intensified.
Unnecessary use of force will not be tolerated" he said.
