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.

Thirty-three years after the Bhopal gas tragedy, survivors are still fighting for adequate compensation and proper medical treatment for ailments caused by the toxic leak. Families of the deceased and people who bore the brunt of the industrial disaster are now signing a petition, to be sent to the Supreme Court, requesting it to start hearing a curative petition of the government filed in December 2010 for more compensation.
