Hyderabad: As the government is planning to go liberal regarding the environmental violations by bulk drug units, the international community has taken up cudgels against the pollution caused by them.

Professor Hans Lofgren, of the Deakin University of Australia said that he will make a representation to his government to take up the issue and also sensitise the US and Sweden against “exporting pollution”. During his visit to some Medak villages located close to pharma units, Prof Lofgren was “shocked” by the extent of pollution and the sufferings of residents.
