One hundred and twenty five survivors of the December 1984 Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal today filed applications for information at the Prime Minister’s Office in New Delhi under the Right to Information Act, 2005. Braving objections of over 100 armed policemen, the survivors sought information on steps taken towards fulfillment of the Prime Minister’s promise of setting up an Empowered Commission on Bhopal for long term rehabilitation of the survivors and their children.
