CM says we won’t allow production of Bt brinjal

Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Saturday said that Karnataka will not allow the cultivation of Bt brinjal and the same has been communicated to the Centre in writing.

In the wake of the resurrected debate on the pros and cons of allowing the cultivation of genetically modified crops and the case where Union Minister for Enviroment Jairam Ramesh spoke in favour of Bt Brinjal, the state government had maintained that there will be no hasty decision on the issue.

A lot more debate is necessary at the experts level on the issue, Yeddyurappa had said.
