Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Wednesday said that he will convene a meeting of local legislators and NGOs in Mumbai to discuss the Jaitapur nuclear power plant coming up in the Konkan region.
"There are a lot of misunderstandings about the project which need to be cleared," Chavan told reporters.
He said a delegation of the State Congress unit and not the government, has gone to Jaitapur to understand why the locals are opposing the proposed plant.
"I plan to convene a meeting to clear the apprhensions about the project after which I will personally visit to the plant site. A team of experts will also be invited for the meeting," Chavan said.
