Safely dispose of chemicals: Ramadoss

PMK founder S. Ramadoss expressed shock over reports that 740 tonnes of ammonium nitrate have been stored in a warehouse near Chennai port for the past five years, and called for its safe disposal.

In a tweet, he cited Tuesday’s explosion in Beirut, caused by large quantities of ammonium nitrate stored in the port, and warned that Chennai could face a similar danger.
