Candlelight vigil for Bhopal gas victims attracts crowds in Delhi

Saturday, March 18, 2006
A group of NGOs got together at the capital’s Dilli Haat to express solidarity for the victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy.
A signature campaign was launched to draw the prime minister’s attention towards their plight and to press for a greater initiative on part of the government to convict those responsible for the tragedy.
Delhiites turned up in large numbers to light candles in support of this cause.
In the coming days, the NGOs plan to organise a rally in the capital with participation from those affected by the gas leak.
They hope the rally will drum up greater support toward getting the victims of the tragedy a fair deal.
