Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) the US chemical multinationals Criminal irresponsibility simply ruined hundreds of innocent lives in Bhopal by the sudden releases of over 40 tonnes of methyl isocyanate (MIC) and the associated lethal chemicals The tragedy was totally man-made and created by those unscrupulous death-dealers who would for making easy profit, not hesitate in any kind of reckless behaviour. The same death-dealing US Company-Union Carbide contributed to spreading disinformation to evade the Responsibility and in the process contributed to untold suffering to thousands of our happiness people. However, the Bhopal tragedy with its suffering and agony continues and thousands of people are afflicted by lung, Eye and Skin Diseases besides psychological problems. The official agencies categories the gas victims as severally affected (65,000), mildly affected (20,000) and those under controlled effects (14,000). The abortion, mortality and infant mortality rates in the severally affected category have been found to be three to four Times Higher than in the controlled category during April, 1965 to March, 1986. While official agencies reports, kept confidential, point to a very serious situation, the Madhya Pradesh Government wants people to believe that all is well in Bhopal. In fact, Statistics bled with reality of significant number of Gynaecological disorders, record abortions and corneal opacity (blurred vision). The Madhya Pradesh Government's approach to the Bhopal disaster by way of suppression of information, inadequate Medical relief and economic rehabilitation as well as persecution of voluntary relief workers have come in for severe Criticism both in the Press and the public. Thus the human agony continues.Printed Pages: 200.
