Say ‘NO’ to GE rice in india!

Posted on November 12, 2007. Filed under: India |

I received a mail from greenpeace, which elaborates how the indian authorities are considering importing Genetically Engineered Rice, and testing them here in india. We all know the state of agriculture in the country, and if this is allowed, it will only drive more farmers to commit suicide. Moreover, its been proved that GE rice is not fit for consumption, and there was a huge uproar in the US last year over this.

So please consider signing this petition online to stop this rash step. One can only hope the government officials actually check their emails.

GE is a technology that needs careful handling. But our babus and politicians seems to be dealing with it in a lackadaisical manner. Of course, corruption is playing a role.
