Kozhikode, July 5: Taking a cue from the Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI(M)], the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has decided to promote organic farming in the State.

A resolution adopted at the two-day State conference of the RSS here said the organisation planned to rope in students, youths and different communities with the slogan, ‘Swacch Kerala-Haritha Kerala-Sundara Kerala’.

The resolution said Kerala depended heavily on other States for vegetables and fruits. It had almost become a consumerist State. The new generation did not want to take up agrarian work. Pesticides and insecticides were being used in agricultural activities. Both the soil and waterbodies had been contaminated. “The time has come for people to return to organic farming practices,” it added.
