you know I was wondering since PM Modi said he will create employment, the easiest method is to hire persons for such government policy enforcement work. Obviously there arent enough food inspectors to go around. Maybe put more people officials on ground with area wise segregation so they are responsible and accountable and to whom reports of violation can be made by the general public. more
India should be a leader in banning unsafe pesticides. It should also be a leader in promoting organic forming reducing dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. more
