The Madhya Pradesh government wants to open the Union Carbide plant to the public. The principal secretary of the state claims this will dispel the “myth” about toxins left at the site. A recent study by Centre for Science and Environment found that the profile of chemicals found within the factory premises matches that of chemicals found in adjacent localities. Moderately persistent chemicals called Carbamates were also found in the city’s groundwater. Clearly, the factory is polluting the environment even 25 years after the plant was shut down.
