Bhopal Gas Tragedy in the year 1984, was the World's Worst Industrial Disaster. The harmful gas leak at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant, in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh has affected over 5 Lakh people. The highly toxic 'methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas' leaked out and spread to the nearby villages and towns.

 

Facts and Figures

Estimates on the death toll caused by the leak vary with departments, governments and with years. But, to put all of them in words, thousands of people were killed due to suffocation and toxicity. The true cause for the leakage is being debated among the government and the UCIL. Blame gaming each other for the incident.

Be it any reason, the deaths have occurred, since then, various organisations have come up especially for the sake of Gas Leak Survivors. The governments over the span of 34 years have been neglecting the survivors. The toxicity in their bodies still affecting them till date, because of lack of treatment at the earliest.

Aiding Groups

Many Survivor Organisations have come up. They have been demanding the government of both the state of Madhya Pradesh and the Central to provide for proper medical care, financial compensation, groundwater cleaning and related soil treatment. All of these demands were not being considered since decades.

Few of the major organisations namely, 'Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Stationery Karmchari Sangh', the 'Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Purush Sangharsh Morcha', 'Children Against Dow-Carbide', and the 'Bhopal Group for Information and Action (BGIA)' together have issued a joint statement against the two-level governments for their negligence.

Representatives & Victims

"Recent scientific studies show that deaths and diseases attributable to exposure to Union Carbide’s gases continue to occur in Bhopal. Yet, over 80% of the recommendations of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee for medical rehabilitation of victims remain to be implemented", says Rachna Dhingra a member of BGIA.

A convener from another organisation says, "The pittance which was disbursed as compensation in most instances was never enough to take care of their daily needs". Protesting and demanding and taking the issue to the law the survivors and survivor organisations have expressed their resent.


Lack of firm figures on the death toll, lack of confirmed financial assistance, in their combination have created a lot of vacuum for the Government to take action. The incident is now still in prolong.
