Ban Killer Pesticides and save lives

I know our circle is for Suraksha or Safety of people and Less crimes better policing but this matter is important.

Basically it is saying that US Monsanto pesticide is highly dangerous and cancer causing.

We must get a circle going for agriculture and PMO must make sure all agriculture ministry officials including Minister are part of it and such practicies and use of glyphosate is immediately ended. more

Unfotunately Govt. is not so interested in real public issues specifically related to agriculture and farmers. These days they are more interested in achieving and maintaining power. Kind of these govt. must be told in every manner that the real issues not to be neglected and without addressing them we're not interested in voting. more  
Dear Anushka,
I do agree with you. I was working for a Pvt company manufacturing pesticides.
Pesticides are toxic to the pests as well as humans and decision to use a pesticide for a crop is based on one of the many criteria like the relative benefits. Whether death due to famine bcos of pest infestation is larger than residual toxicity in the soil/crop.

If handling of a pesticide is not safe the regulating authority has to decide whether to use such pesticide or alternates are available with less hazard.
I think merely having a circle which can only share and disseminate information may not be adequate to prevent a bad governance. The circle should be able to interact with a government authorized entity or organization who has the legislative power, executive and judicial powers to decide, regulate regarding use ofpesticides. Only then there is possibility of
having a deliberation for deterence in use of such pesticide like Glyphosate, DDT,etc. more  
Any pesticide that is detrimental to human health should be banned. Unfortunately, we do not see any action by the Govt in this regard. Vested interests take precedence to public health and welfare. more  
As Doctor I know the potential harmful effect of killer pesticide but it's unfortunate in our country in India commercial interest take precedence over everything else. So we are at loss.Even politicians are least bothered, they have myopic vision only for term of 5 years. more  
Ministry of Agriculture , all institutions dealing with this subject must step in immidiately even if they are busy in elections. more
