The world’s worst industrial disaster the Bhopal gas tragedy which claimed scores of lives will complete 25 years tomorrow even as the woes of gas victims still continue.
The incident took place when the lethal Methyl Iso Cyanate (MIC) Gas leaked from the Union Carbide factory that was producing pesticides here.
The case is still being fought at the Chief Judicial Magistrate level and after that it may be challenged again in the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
Meanwhile, various NGOs, fighting for the cause of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy victims, here today charged the Centre and the Madhya Pradesh government with being responsible for not extraditing former Union Carbide Chairman, Warren Anderson.
They also charged that inadequate compensation to the gas affected persons were paid and non-disposal of toxic waste from the plant site even after 25 years continues.
A number of events including photo exhibition related to the Bhopal Gas Tragedy, agitations, sit-in, poetry night, press briefings and felicitations programmes are being organised since the last couple of days.
