Haripur is located in the eastern state of India called Bengal. Owing to people’s peaceful but massive agitation for past several years, the state government has been forced to disallow allocation of land for the project. However, the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited(NPCIL), has not set its eyes off the identified land and has recently once again approached the Mamta Bannerji government in the state, urging her to restart the project.

Here is an old but very powerful documentary on the local people’s protest:
