Oppose approval of Marketing of GM Corn

Monsanto's Bt Cotton has failed in India and it failed the cotton growing farmers as well. The evergrowing production costs and indebtness caused by these GM seeds have pushed the farmers in such a condition that they are left with no other option but to kill themselves. Now the company (Monsanto) has applied for an approval for marketing its GM Corn in India. This will further hit the agrarian economy of the country which is already in a very bad shape.
