The MPs of Sena, which is strongly against the 10,000 MW nuclear power project, had met Modi a few months back and conveyed to him their apprehensions over the plant.
Sena leader and Environment Minister in the BJP-led state government, Ramdas Kadam said he has sent a detailed report to Modi on how the project will affect the green cover in Konkan and the impact it will have on marine life in the nearby region.
Questioning the use of nuclear power at a time when the "world is re-thinking on using nuclear power", Kadam said.

India should instead focus on green and solar-powered energy. According to a report submitted by the Goa-based National Institute of Oceanography, 24 species of marine seaweeds and 6 species of mangroves would be destroyed by the effluents discharged in the Arabian Sea from the nuclear plant, as per the minister.
