NEW DELHI: Parliament today remembered the victims of Bhopal gas tragedy on the 31st anniversary, with Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari saying the man-made tragedy of "unparalleled magnitude" continues to haunt the victims as he pitched for stricter regulations to prevent such tragedies.

Members in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha expressed their empathy and support to the victims. They also stood in silence for a short while.

In the Rajya Sabha, Ansari said on this day, the House solemnly remembers the innocent victims of Bhopal tragedy 31 years ago.
