London Olympics: Indian Olympians petition against Dow Chemical

Bhopal gas survivors to stop trains on 27th anniversary

Bhopal: India should not participate in the London Olympics-2012 if Dow Chemicals was retained as the event's sponsor, newly elected Olympian Association of India (OAI) president Aslam Sher Khan said Wednesday.

Khan along with survivors of Bhopal Gas Tragedy met Indian Olympic Association (IOA) acting President Vijay Mahrotra in Delhi and demanded that it register its protest with the London Olympics organizing committee over Dow sponsoring the event.

 

Dow now owns the defunct Union Carbide plant in Bhopal from where the deadly MIC gas leaked in 1984, killing thousands of people.

The former Olympian told IANS over phone from Delhi: "Being an Olympian, I do understand the feeling of players who work hard to participate in event like Olympics and that how important it is for their careers."

"But, being a Bhopali, I think India should not participate in London Olympics if Dow Chemicals should not be removed from sponsorship," he added.
