Bhopal gas tragedy: Survivors oppose 'Run Bhopal Run' half marathon

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Dec 03 (ANI): People from across the nation participated in the 'Run Bhopal Run' marathon on the 33rd anniversary of Bhopal gas tragedy. Thousands of people were killed on December 03, 1984 when tons of toxic gas accidentally leaked from a pesticide factory and was carried by the wind into the surrounding slums.

While most gas leak survivors will mourn the disaster in old Bhopal, the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government organised the half marathon with fun and frolic in the posh localities of the city. The victims of the tragedy opposed 'Run Bhopal Run' marathon and pressed for observing gas disaster day as a 'black day.'
