Commercialisation of Bt Brinjal?

Source: MOEF report, Date: February , 2010

 

 

“Strong views have been expressed on the Bt Brinjal issue both for and against. My objective is to arrive at a careful, considered decision in the public and national interest…I should like to make clear at the very outset that my concern is with Bt Brinjal alone and not with the larger issue of genetic engineering and biotechnology in agriculture. The issue for me is limited to what to do with the GAEC recommendation on the commercialization of Bt-Brinjal.”

     —Jairam Ramesh

 

Jairam Ramesh, Congress Spokesperson, has been under the scanner on the issue of Bt Brinjal. Read on his views as expressed to the Ministry of Environment and Forests, The Genetic Engineering Approvals Committee set up by the under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986.
