Dear Sir

We came to know through your news paper about nicle plant near by us. We know nickel is a metal  that occurs in the environment only at very low level. As a result of chemical plant which extract nickle ,an uptake of nickle boost . An uptake of  large quantities of nickel has many  consequences such as  higher chances of development of lung cancer, nose cancer, larynx cancer and prostate cancer,  sickness and dizziness.After exposure to nickel gas which will come from chemical plant cause  lung embolism,  respiratory failure, birth defects etc .Plants are known to accumulate nickel ,nickel uptake will boost when people eat large quantities of vegetables from polluted soils . As a result  of chemical plant the nickel uptake from vegetables ,enviroment will be eminent.So we people oppose this chemical plant.
