Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh Congress has
appealed in a letter to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi to
provide compensation of Rs 10 lakh each to the families of
those killed in the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.
"A compensation of Rs 10 lakh each should be paid to the
next of kin of those who have died in the Bhopal gas
disaster," State Congress Spokesman Arif Masood said.
Besides, Rs 5 lakh each should be provided to those whose
health was affected by the industrial disaster, Masood said.
The Congress leader said he had written a letter about
these demands to party president Sonia Gandhi.
