May sense and grace prevail upon Jairam Ramesh

Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh came to Bhopal on July 5 to meet representatives of the Bhopal survivors organisations. During his last visit to Bhopal on September 14, 2009, he had picked up a piece of hazardous waste stored in the abandoned Union Carbide factory and somewhat like Hrithik Roshan in a Hide & Seek biscuits promo, declared it safe. Given this was completely contradictory to the findings of a dozen scientific studies by various agencies from 1990 to 2007, it was a classic case of foot-in-mouth syndrome, and in full view of the media too.
