Villagers oppose India's nuclear park

Villagers in western Maharashtra decry project to build largest nuclear park in the world.

    The crisis in Japan has led many countries to review their nuclear plans, but not India.

    The state of Maharastra is still going ahead with plans to build the world's largest nuclear park in Jaitapur, a region along the Konkan coast that already sits atop a known fault line.

    The ambitious Indian-French project has not gone down well with those living near the earmarked site.
