Hold Dow responsible for Bhopal gas tragedy: US senators

Even as the PMO is working to facilitate investments by…Dow in India by resolving the issue of its 'legal liability' in the Bhopal gas tragedy, a group of 20 US Senators have pleaded that Dow be held responsible for the disaster. The senators wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in March 2006 seeking justice for Bhopal gas victims and demanded that Dow Chemical, the parent company of Union Carbide, too be held responsible. This is in contrast to the government's decision to ask the department of chemicals and petrochemicals to formulate a Cabinet note in order to probe the possibility of resolving the legal liability of Dow outside the courts.
