NPCIL's Mithivirdi nuclear plant continues to face opposition

Villagers boycott public hearing on environment impact assesment report Hundreds of farmers from villages that are likely to be affected by the proposed nuclear power project in Mitihivirdi, Bhavnagar, on Tuesday, walked out of the public hearing on the project environment impact assessment (EIA) report. They have been opposing the proposed nuclear power plant (NPP), with six light water reactors (LWR) of 1000 MW capacity each, since the project was announced on the grounds that it would cause irreparable damage to environment there.
