India-nuclear Econintersect (reported by Sanjeev Kulkarni):  The Indian Government's plan to build the largest nuclear power plant in the world seems to be getting stuck.  According to Bloomberg, the attempts of the Indian government to add a major electrical power plant to support the nation's rapidly growing economy are meeting stiffened opposition.

Follow up:

The plant was being opposed earlier by the local fishermen and Mango growers and after Japan's Fukushima disaster opposition to the nuclear plant has been steadily rising. The Ratnagiri region is the producer of most expensive mangoes in the world.

Protesters are preparing for fresh legal challenge.
