Ratnagiri: Union Power Minister Sushil Kumar
Shinde has appealed the people of Maharashtra`s Konkan region
to not oppose the proposed nuclear power plant in Jaitapur
here.
"An ultra mega power project has been constructed near
Solapur. There has been no opposition to that. Then why are
people in Kokan region so afraid of the Jaitapur project," he
said during his visit to Khed district in Ratnagiri yesterday.
State Industries Minister Narayan Rane, who visited the
project site earlier in the week, had said, "I am also native
of Konkan. I know that the nuclear power is totally safe. The
nation needs this project," he added.
