State will not introduce GM crops, says VS

Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said here on Wednesday that the State government had taken its policy against introduction of genetically modified (GM) crops in the State after examining the pros and cons.

However, there was scope for further studies on various aspects of the technology and people were free to look into them, the Chief Minister said in reply to questions from the media at his weekly Cabinet briefing.

Mr. Achuthanandan said he had received no complaint against K.G. Bhaskaran, brother of National Human Rights Commission Chairman K.G. Balakrishnan and special government pleader at the Kerala High Court. Action would be taken if any complaint was received. (Mr. Bhaskaran has gone on leave against the background of certain allegations against him.)

Kannur airport shares

The Chief Minister said no decision had been taken on allocation of shares of the proposed Kannur airport to private applicants.

A substantial portion of the shares were proposed to be issued to small investors. There was no plan to deal with bigwigs, the Chief Minister said.
