Objecting to the Centre’s approval for field trials of 15 genetically modified crops, DMK chief M Karunanidhi today sought the BJP government’s intervention in this matter and cancel the permission.

“Even during the UPA government, they had revoked their approval given to cultivate Bt brinjal, following strong protests against it. So, the BJP government should immediately intervene in this issue and revoke their approval given for field trials of GM crops,” Karunanidhi said in a statement.
