Rejecting Sharad Pawar's stance on GM crops being the answer to India's food security, 17 Greenpeace activists unfurled a massive banner with the message "Say NO to GM, Yes to Food Security" at the Food Corporation of India's godown in Delhi's Mayapuri area. As the parliament prepares to kick off the budget session tomorrow, this act reiterates that the solution lies in adopting a holistic view of food security with focus on better food distribution systems rather than promoting false solutions like genetically modified crops (GM).

Greenpeace urges the Minister of Environment, Jayanthi Natarajan, who is the decision maker on the environmental release of GMOs to intervene so that the MoA does not mislead the debate of food security.
