They sought the government to act against all those violating the pollution control board norms and take early measures to save the lives of people before any similar incidents repeat.

The leaders said that there are many pharma, iron manufacturing, plastic manufacturing, fertiliser, insecticide manufacturing and other hazardous colour and chemical manufacturing companies located along the national highway 44 and most of them allegedly violating environment and pollution control norms and causing grave risk to the health of the people in addition to polluting land, water and air and destroying the crops in the surrounding regions.

While speaking to The Hans India, CPI district secretary Paramesh Goud said Vishaka incident is reminding him of the Bhopal gas leakage, which killed lakhs of people. He said the incident was due to the failure of the authorities granting permission to such factories.
