Mon residents said they would oppose the Inn Din coal-fired power plant project which is due to start when the National League for Democracy government takes power, according to Mi Thiri Oo from Inn Din Youth Association at a press conference held at the Orchid Hotel in Yangon.
 
“We don’t need the project and it will damage our environment. We hope the new government will listen to us. The deal was signed without our consent and we have denounced it from the start. Residents will unanimously oppose the project unless it is stopped by the new government,” said Mi Thiri Oo.
