The exhibition was attented by people from all walks of life. Admiral Ramdas, a strong opponent of nuclear energy talks about the dangers of the proposed nuclear project at Jaitapur in Maharashtra.

The government has plans to build nuclear reactor park in Jaitapur, Maharashtra. Jaitapur, like Fukushima in Japan, is an earthquake prone zone. The technology being used here is also untested. People across the country have been opposing this plant, but the government is quite adamant about its plans.
