MUMBAI: Children from 70 schools in the Jaitapur-Madban area in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra have boycotted classes to protest against the district administration asking their teachers to tell them that nuclear energy is “clean and green energy”.
Some days ago, district officials went around primary schools asking teachers to instil in students that the nuclear power project at Jaitapur was good for them.
Pravin Gavankar from Madban village near the site of the project, said that nearly 2,500 to 3000 children from 20 villages did not go to school and even the anganwadis, where children under six years are sent, remained closed. It was a peaceful protest, he added.
Mr. Gavankar who belongs to the Janhit Seva Samiti and faces a charge of attempt to murder said that the schools would remain closed .
