THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala assembly passed a resolution, demanding that the Centre withdraw the decision to grant permission for production and cultivation of Genetically Modified Mustard seed for commercial purposes.

Moving the resolution, Agriculture Minister V S Sunil Kumar said it was unfortunate that the Centre’s Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) had accorded sanction for production and cultivation of GM mustard.
