The political parties that were in power during these years are guilty of culpable neglect

There is renewed hope for the gas victims as people across the country have become one with their cause and are expressing outrage over denial of justice and the manoeuvres of those in authority in Bhopal who had allowed the then Union Carbide Corporation chief Warren Anderson to escape to America when the city was struck by the worst industrial catastrophe in December 1984.

IN the first official response from the Gov ernment on the Warren Anderson issue Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee ha put the onus squarely on former Madhy Pradesh Chief Minister Arjun Singh.
