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 ...

Bhopal Gas Tragedy: 33 yrs on, survivors still wait for adequate compensation, medical treatment 3.12.2017 DNA: Top News
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. The US company which then owned the chemical plant here, from where the poisonous gas leaked in 1984, has not yet adequately compensated the victims, a Madhya Pradesh minister said. The victims of the "world's worst disaster" had not been paid adequately by US-based Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) now owned by Dow Chemicals, MP's Bhopal Gas Tragedy Relief and Rehabilitation Minister Vishwas Sarang told PTI. He alleged that the then Central government led by the Congress was more interested in helping the multi-national company rather than bringing it to book. "The Central and the ...

Thirty three years of Bhopal tragedy 3.12.2017 deccanherald.com
It has been 33 years since Bhopal witnessed one of the largest industrial disasters in the world. On December 2, 1984, 40 tonnes of methyl isocyanate (MIC) leaked from a tank at the Union Carbide Corporation (UCC). MIC is used for producing carbamate pesticides, which are used in gardens and for agricultural purposes as well. The Madhya Pradesh governments statistics show 3,787 died immediately. According to an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court by the Centre on October 26, 2006, more than 5.5 lakh people were injured. As per organisations, at least 20,000 have died over the years.

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 ...

Seems like politician has taken over the doctor: Twitter slams Harsh Vardhan for saying Delhi smog isn't an emergency 15.11.2017 DNA: Top News
Union science and environment Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has been criticized on social media for claiming that the high pollution levels in the national capital are no cause for worry. Harsh Vardhan has said there is no need to spread panic among the people over the present air pollution situation in Delhi, adding it is not like the Bhopal gas tragedy which was an “emergency”. The Delhi-NCR region has been under a thick blanket of smog over the last one week. Doctors have declared the situation as a ‘public health emergency’, while the government has taken a series of measures in view of high pollution levels. “I am talking in practical terms. You see, what happened in Bhopal when there was a gas leak and hundreds of thousands of people fell acutely sick and had to be rushed to hospital. We call that an emergency situation where you have to panic and you have to see what you have to do. I am not saying we shouldn’t do anything about it (Delhi smog); everyone has to respond to what he is supposed to do. ...
