Pavan is reporting live from a rally by people of Bhopal to pay tribute to who died dueto Bhopal Gas tragedy on 3rd December 1984 and show solidarity with the ongoing struggle to demand decent compensation for sufferers and cleaning up of the Union Carbide premises. The marchers say it is shameful that Govt is standing for the company and have not been able to give full compensation to victims after 30 long years. Many still suffering and vow to continue their fight. Pavan@8602007333
