Bhopal Gas Tragedy: All Religion Meeting, Rally Held In Bhopal; Protest In Delhi

Bhopal: On the 38th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy, a tribute and an all-religion gathering was held at the Central Library. CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan also attended the meeting and paid tribute. He said that the night of 2-3 December 1984 can never be forgotten. The Chief Minister also called for environmental protection by planting saplings.

Chief Minister Chouhan said that he pays tribute to the departed souls who lost their lives in the Bhopal gas tragedy. Today all religious leaders have offered prayers. All religions inspire us with the desire for human welfare and to work to remove the suffering of others.

Gas tragedy is a lesson

He said- Bhopal gas tragedy is a lesson that we should use natural resources according to our needs. Take from nature only what is needed. This earth is for everyone. Everyone has the right to live. Exploiting nature excessively can lead to our own destruction.

Commissioner Mal Singh, Mayor Malti Rai and religious leaders of different communities were also present on the stage. Before the CM's address, the religious leaders kept their views. At the end of the programme, tribute was paid to the people who died in the gas tragedy by observing silence for two minutes.

Rally taken out in Bhopal

A rally was organized in Bhopal on the 38th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy by 'Bhopal Ki Awaaz', an organization involved in the fight for justice for the victims of Union Carbide poisoning. The rally was taken out from Putta Mill to Union Carbide.

Demand for proper compensation

On the other hand, gas victims also protested in Delhi today and will meet Chemicals Minister Mansukh Mandaviya. They will demand that the central government present the correct figures of deaths and diseases in the pending compensation case of gas victims before the Supreme Court.

According to the gas victims, they have not yet received proper compensation, nor has any concrete action been taken against those responsible for the disaster. 

They demand that their side should be properly presented in the Supreme Court with correct facts and figures and each gas victim should get a minimum compensation of Rs. 5 lakh. Gas victims claim that the accurate figure of deaths of gas victims has not been presented.
