#StopGMMustard STOP THE COMMERCIALISATION OF GM MUSTARDn-------------------------------------------n"மரபணு மாற்றம் செய்யப்பட்ட கடுகு பயிரை அனுமதிக்கக்கூடாது" மத்திய அமைச்சர்களுக்கு மருத்துவர் அன்புமணி ராமதாஸ் அவர்கள் கடிதம்"nnதில்லி பல்கலைக்கழகத்தின் மரபணு பொறியியல் பிரிவைச் சேர்ந்த விஞ்ஞானிகள் மரபணு மாற்றம் செய்யப்பட்ட கடுகு வகையை உருவாக்கியிருக்கிறார்கள். இதற்கு மத்திய அரசு ஒப்புதல் அளிக்க உள்ளது. இந்த கடுகு வகைக்கு ஒப்புதல் அளிக்கக்கூடாது; அதை தடை செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று வலியுறுத்தி மத்திய சுகாதாரத்துறை அமைச்சர் ஜே.பி.நட்டா, சுற்றுச்சூழல் துறை அமைச்சர் பிரகாஷ் ஜாவ்தேகர் ஆகியோருக்கு நான் எழுதியுள்ள கடிதம்: n-------------------------------------------nDear Shri NaddajinnIt has come to my notice through a media report that India is on the verge of considering the approval of a Genetically Modified (GM) Mustard that scientists at Delhi University’s CGCMP have developed, given that the application for permission for commercial cultivation has been moved with the GEAC (Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee), the regulatory body in the Ministry for Environment, Forests & Climate Change. The seriousness of this matter, given the unresolved controversies around GM crops and foods prompts me to write to you.nnI remember the time that I was the Union Health Minister when the debate around Btbrinjal, another GM food crop, unfolded in the country. The similarities between these two GMOs (Btbrinjal and GM mustard) are striking, as you would agree. India is the Centre of Diversity of both these crops and therefore, contamination of our non-GM varieties, including wild varieties, is a matter of serious concern. Both are food crops which are more or less directly consumed, unlike in the West where processed and packaged foods are consumed. There will be few choices left if such GM crops are allowed for cultivation, either for farmers or consumers. As you would agree, labeling of GM foods is next to impossible in countries like India where most food is not packaged but is sold and procured in the open.nnLike in the case of Brinjal, mustard is consumed extensively throughout India and also used extensively in Indian Systems of Medicine, especially Ayurveda. It is not clear what the impact of genetic modification of natural plants would be in terms of both efficacy and toxicity of plants that are used in Ayurveda.nnThe opaqueness and lack of transparency of the regulators continues, five years after the indefinite moratorium that the Government of India placed on Btbrinjal in February 2010. It has come to my notice that biosafety data is not being shared with the public despite Supreme Court orders to the contrary. It is also reported that conflict of interest continues to pervade the regulatory body, without allowing independent decision-making, and putting a question mark in the minds of public on the dependability of the regulators.nnWhile placing a moratorium on Btbrinjal, the Government of India’s decision orders noted that no long term independent testing took place on the GMO, based on which sound regulatory decisions can be taken. That situation apparently continues with this GM mustard too.nnMost importantly, both in the case of Btbrinjal and GM mustard, it is not as though alternatives for the purported claims by the crop developers do not exist. There are agro-ecological approaches which provide safe and healthy food to all citizens, rather than risk their food safety through the transgenic approach. Why then should this option be explored at all? It is not out of place to remind you that in the recent past many countries around the world put into place active bans on GM crops’ cultivation. Why should India be opting for this unsafe technology?nnWhen the Btbrinjal issue was brought to my notice by concerned citizens, I immediately ensured that the Health Ministry and its officials in the regulatory body took a rigorous, pro-people and pro-science stand, so that citizens’ interests are not compromised. I have faith that you will do the same, and that Department of AYUSH in particular will immediately intervene and look into the matter. nnThank you.nnBest wishes,nn(Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss MP)nnTo:nnShri Jagat Prakash NaddanMinister for Health & Family Welfare,nGovernment of IndianNirman Bhawan,nNew DelhinnCopy: Shri Prakash Javadekar, Minister for Environment, Forests & Climate Change, Government of India
