With their fearless determination and struggle against the proposed nuclear power plant at Chutka in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh, people have scored a historic victory against the government. For the first time in India, the government had to postpone indefinitely its sham public-hearing that was scheduled on 24th May due to firm opposition of the people. Through their heroic determination the people of Chutka and nearby villages have given a clear message to the government that do not want the nuclear power project at all and also that they are ready to go to any extent for forcing the government to withdraw the project.

Why does the government brutally silence local dissent and turns the public hearings invariably into cruel jokes, when it is so sure about the shining claims of nuclear energy? If it is the safest technology and the best solution for the people’s progress, why is their constitutionally mandated participation in the decision-making process denied so violently?

The People of Chutka and adjoining villages in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh won another victory against the Chutka (Madhya Pradesh) Nuclear Power Plant (being imposed on them by Congress-led Central government in active collusion with BJP-led state government) as the government was forced for the second time to postpone its farcical public-hearing on the project that was scheduled on 31st July. After a sustained protest by people of the region that was actively supported by almost every section of left-democratic forces in the state and beyond, the district administration called off the public-hearing on 29th July.
