Udupi; Sept 14: Addressing the media reporters in the press meet held on Sept 14,Saturday at Pathrika Bhavan,Jayakrishna Shetty,founder Jayakrishna Parisara Premi Samiti said in his address that we don’t support Niddodi power plant project and instead we support eco-friendly projects like in Goa enginerring,automobile,pharmaceutical zone.
Nagarjun power plant which has been functional for the last three years has solved the power problem in the region to some extent. But nobody could solve the problem of environment pollution in the region. We don’t want one more power plant for twin district of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada and hence put Niddodi power plant project in the dust bin, he said
Instead of power plant project, bring engineering, automobile and pharmaceutical zone in the place and Samiti is trying to put pressure on government in this regard, he added.
