NEW DELHI: Bollywood film-maker Mahesh Bhatt has called the Union environment and forest minister M Veerappa Moily a “corporate mole”.

A day after Moily reversed the decision of his predecessor Jayanthi Natarajan on GM crops and allowed field trials of over 200 varieties of genetically modified seeds, Bhatt on Friday questioned the minister’s decision on Twitter.

Bhatt tweeted: “Moily is a corporate mole, (he) must explain why India needs GM crops when it produces over 260 million tonnes of food grains.”
