Sharad Pawar reiterates State Govts authority….

In a letter to the Chattisgarh Agriculture Minister Mr Chandrasekhar Sahu, Sharad Pawar, Union Agriculture Minister reiterates that if the state government does not agree for conduct of any GM crop field trials in the State, no approvals would be accorded by GEAC for such trials (However, this is not quite the case now since GM maize and GM mustard trials were approved for Madhya Pradesh even after the state government wrote to the Centre against such trials, for example).

This information was obtained under Right To Information Act. A copy of the letter is available here.
