GoM on Bhopal to meet Friday

June 17, 2010

The reconstituted Group of Ministers (GoM) on the Bhopal gas tragedy will meet Friday to discuss how best to reach out to those victims who have not yet been adequately compensated, a senior minister said Thursday.

“Two hours have been allocated for discussion. Various issues will be discussed, including the issue of reaching out to those victims who, unfortunately, have not yet got adequate compensation,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said.

“I am confident that the meeting will address the concerns on a priority basis,” Soni added while speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Asked whether the GoM would seek the views of senior Congress leader Arjun Singh, who was the Madhya Pradesh chief minister at the time of the Dec 2-3, 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy, Soni said: “I will not answer that question.”
