German company GIZ has submitted a proposal to state government of Madhya Pradesh in India for removal and safe incineration of toxic waste lying at Bhopal.
Government of India has set up a committee to study the proposal and feasibility of transporting these highly toxic wastes from the most infamous industrial site in Bhopal.
Bhopal disaster happened on December 2-3, 1984, now its 2012, almost 28 years has passed. How fast the authorities act when a disaster strikes and take up the cleaning operations, amazing!!!!
