    I'd love to hear the inside scoop on this, or at least get some help in reading this news item
    Madhya Pradesh seeks to quash Goldman-backed solar project
    It sounds like the state is using bureaucracy to strong-arm the project developers into renegotiating the PPA to a lower rate but I am not sure.

    Is that your read of the news article ?

    The state says they canceled the project due to delays in obtaining land use permits ... but if I am reading the news correctly (or reading between the lines correctly,) the state is with holding the land permits, effectively forcing the project to fail.
