Over 5,000 farmers today submitted a memorandum to the Gujarat Chief Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, demanding cancellation of permission given to Nirma Ltd for setting up a cement plant in Bhavnagar district.

Nirma Ltd is building up a cement plant with capacity of 1.91 million tonnes per annum, along with its captive power and coke oven plant, near Padhiarka village in Mahuva taluka of Bhavnagar district.

Farmers, from the villages in vicinity of the upcoming project, took out a rally on March 3 that reached Ahmedabad on Wednesday, in protest against the Nirma plant.
