Jalandhar City residents this morning witnessed a different kind of an awareness rally against the genetically modified (GM) sarson, where activists of various NGOs, along with the Kheti Virasat Mission, told people about ill-effects of GM crops and also made them sign postal cards that will be sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Various NGOs, along with farmers in Punjab, have opposed the move of the genetic engineering appraisal committee (GEAC) clearing the proposal for the GM mustard, and many discussions over the GM issue have been held on the social media.
