Musturd .The crop which is an integral part of every Indian’s food is modified and about to be imposed on us. Silently. This is not going to stop with Musturd , there are a quite a few waiting to enter our food cycle. This is just the key . No where in the world any GM crop is made available for human consumption . Seventeen of the 20 most developed countries including Japan, Russia, Israel and most of Europe refuse to grow GM crops. Is India the laboratory ?
If GM mustard is now introduced, who will lose? Every Indian who consumes mustard in any form, as s/he will also consume the herbicide residues on it; the millions of poor women who depend on weeding to support their family who will be displaced; the bee keepers whose honey will be contaminated; farmers whose yields will fall eventually as bees die out; and the Indian nation, which will find that it has lost its seed diversity and the international competitive advantage of its non-GM mustard and honey.
Its time for your raise our voice and STOP it now. We should remember and remind BJP its manifesto . Its manifesto reads “GM foods will not be allowed without full scientific evaluation on the long term effects on soil, production and biological impact on consumers”.
The Prime Minister had delighted consumers by lending his weight to the promotion of organic food. On the other hand, GM and organic are completely incompatible. Please act on your promises.
