Dow Chemicals may get green signal HT

Far from banning the entry of Dow Chemicals into the country, the Center is gearing up to give the company a green signal to invest in India – even when the people of Bhopal are still suffering from not just the horror of the Bhopal Legacy but also from the threat of contamination from the chemicals that still lie around the site.

It would not speak good for the Government if such a clearance is actually given and Dow Chemicals be allowed to plant such time bombs in this country.
