New Delhi, May 7: Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel gas urged Central government to not allow Shivraj government in Madhya Pradesh to dilute safety norms in factories considering the gas leak tragedy in Visakhapatnam that has claimed 6 lives and 1000 hospitalised.

“In light of today’s industrial accident in AP, I would urge the Central govt to reject MP govt’s proposal to dilute safety norms in small factories. Safeguarding human lives,particularly of the poor & the vulnerable,has to be at the soul of any policy,” Ahmed patel said.

His statement comes after the Madhya Pradesh government said it is planning to introduce a slew of changes to labour laws, including allowing more factories to operate without following safety and health norms and give a free hand to new companies to “keep labourers in service as per their convenience”.
