Karnataka will not allow commercial cultivation of Bt Brinjal: Yeddyurappa

Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa today said that the state would not allow the commercial cultivation of Bt Brinjal, as it would sound the “death knell” for farmers.

“Clearly, for any reason, it can’t be implemented,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here. “By introducing it (Bt Brinjal), it will sound the death knell to farmers”.
