Indian Villagers Say Reactor Will Destroy Livelihoods

Indian Villagers Say Reactor Will Destroy Livelihoods Play

April 6 (Bloomberg) -- Fisherman Amjad Borkar and mango grower Praveen Gavankar talk about their opposition to a proposed nuclear power plant in Jaitapur on the western coast of India. In the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster, local villagers fear the plant, to be built with France’s Areva SA, will damage their health and their livelihoods. The opposition pits fishermen and farmers against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government, which is struggling to bridge a 10 percent peak power shortfall needed to maintain growth in one of the world's fastest growing economies.
