Last year, the apex court, acting on a writ petition had banned the production and sale of endosulfan in India. The court had directed the state and Centre to freeze the production licences granted to manufacturers of endosulfan till further orders. Last week Centre but forward an affidavit in Supreme Court to allow states to use endosulfan except in Kerala and Karnataka.  In kerala kasagod ,  22 lakh tonnes of endosulphan between 1976 and 2000, which resulted in 400-800% higher  pesticide levels in breast milk samples than were  allowed .  Instead of rehabilitating the Kasargod victims, the Centre plans to  repeat the ' KASAGORD TRAGEDY" in other states. WHAT A SHAME
