Bhopal gas victims still waiting for adequate damages 4.12.2017 DNA: Top News
Even after 33 years of one of the world’s worst industrial disasters to happen in India, notoriously etched in the national consciousness as the ‘Bhopal Gas Tragedy’ in which a leak of Methyl Isocyanate gas from Union Carbide plant in the December of 1984 killed thousands and affected millions, survivors are still awaiting adequate compensation. Bhopal’s third generation, born after the disaster, is also suffering from ailments. While there are children who could not sit or speak or hear, many women were not able to conceive again. A large number of tragedy survivors last night marched, holding burning torches in their hand, to a memorial of the world’s worst industrial disaster. They paid homage to those who lost their lives in the calamity at the memorial statue in front of the now-defunct UCC factory. Families of those who died and people who are still bearing the brunt of the ill-effects of the industrial disaster are now signing a petition, to be sent to the Supreme Court, requesting it to start ...

Remove Carbide toxic waste under 'Swachh Bharat' drive: Groups 2.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Two organisations working for survivors of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to get the toxic waste lying in the defunct union carbide factory here removed under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA). Bhopal Gas Peedith Mahila Udyog Sanghathan (BGPMUS) and Bhopal Gas Peedith Sangharsh Sahayog Samiti (BGPSSS) have made the request in a letter sent to Modi on November 30. "It is inexplicable as to why the issue of the urgent need for cleaning up the highly toxic spots in and around the former pesticide factory of Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) at Bhopal is not a vital part of that (SBA) campaign," they said in the letter. Toxic gas spewed from the carbide factory on the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984, killing thousands of people and gravely affecting about 5,50,000 others. "Kindly direct the officials concerned to take requisite steps to re-mediate the polluted environment (including 1,10,000 tons of contaminated soil alone) by seeking necessary technical ...
