MP CM suggests memorial for Bhopal gas tragedy victims on 36th anniversary

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on December 03 attended 36th Bhopal Gas tragedy anniversary and paid tribute to the victims by observing a two-minute silence, and suggested that "we should soon build a memorial" for the grieving families so that the "world can learn a lesson" from the disaster. The Bhopal Gas disaster took place on the night of 2-3 December, 1984, and had claimed the lives of thousands of people. Remembering the horrific event, Chouhan said a memorial for the victims should teach the world that no city becomes like Bhopal, and that no project should be made without precautions that could fatally harm the population. The Madhya Pradesh CM also recalled the historical events in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which were scarred after the nuclear bombs explosion.
