There has been strong protests from Indian Sports and other sections for dropping the Dow Chemicals from the sponsorship of the London Olympics for the massive Bhopal tragedy and the responsibility of Dow Chemicals in the same. But the government was keeping a studied silence. At last, the government has also demanded that it should be removed from the sponsorship. The government has asked the International Olympics Committee to cancel the sponsorship for the sake of the ideals of human rights as thousands have lost their lives in the Bhopal tragedy and several more continue to suffer the side-effects.
We completely support the present stand of the government and demand it that the issue should be taken very strongly and effectively so that the killer Dow Chemicals is shunted out.
