We are writing to you on behalf of five organizations working for the welfare of the survivors of the December 1984 Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal.
Through this letter and in continuation of our correspondence with your office since June 2010 we reiterate our demand that the governments at the centre and state must:
- Revise the figures of death and injury caused by the Bhopal disaster presented in the Curative Petition on the basis of scientific facts and seek urgent hearing on the petition.
- Intervene in the US Federal Court in support of Bhopal victims of ground water contamination seeking clean up of the Union Carbide factory area and its surroundings.
We are writing to you to inform you that the victims of Union Carbide and Dow Chemical’s toxic gas and contaminated water and their supporters have decided to go on a fast without water to remind the governments at the centre and the state of their constitutional duty of protecting the legal rights to adequate compensation of the most vulnerable citizens.
In this 30th anniversary year we expect you to do your best to stop the injustices of the last three decades that the Bhopalis have endured.
