The Bhopal Gas victims have been demanding for more compensation and also to include those who have been left out from the list of victims, though eligible for the same. Now five of these victims have started hunger strike putting the above demands. Amnesty International was also putting pressure on the government. More than 200 women were sitting along with the fasting women.

After a meeting with the representatives of the women victims, Ananthakumar, Minister for Chemicals and fertilisers, announced that the compensation will be increased and the list of victims will be revised to include the left out victims.

To that extent, good news.There should not be any delay in implementing these, since intolerable delay has already occurred and many have died without getting compensation.
