In a blow to both the Centre and the Madhya Pradesh government's efforts, a German firm has refused to dispose of 350 tonnes of toxic waste from the Bhopal gas disaster site to Germany citing "uncertainties" on both the sides. A Group of Ministers (GoM) in June had approved the proposal for disposing of 350 metric tonnes of packaged chemical waste, resulting from Bhopal gas disaster of December 1984, by German agency GIZ for a payment of Rs 25 crore.
