Endosulfan: State to seek nation-wide ban

Special Correspondent

Thiruvananthapuram: Forest Minister Benoy Viswom on Saturday said the government would seek a country-wide ban on Endosulfan at a meeting convened by the Centre on November 23 to discuss India's stand at the Geneva and Rotterdam conventions.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr.Viswom said it had been decided to include the Principal Secretary (Forest) in the Kerala delegation to the November 23 meeting.

The Principal Secretaries for Environment, Agriculture and Health would be the other members. The State would also oppose the decision to set up yet another committee to study the impact of Endosulfan. The decision to appoint Dr. C D Mayee, who had earlier presided over another committee, was unjustified because he appeared to be an advocate of Endosulfan.
