Subject: Suspicious Bill
Hi Anant Joglekar,
I just signed a petition asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the
Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill from being passed.
This bill will create a body which will single-handedly clear all genetically
modified (GM) crops. Public opposition made the Karnataka government ban field
trials of GM crops in the state recently. Now we need to get the national
government to stop this bill.
You should ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the dangerous BRAI bill

The thought of another organism’s gene in my vegetable is revolting. Imagine if
this comes true, what will we be eating?
Genetic modification of food crops will make this a reality. These potentially
toxic foods harm our health and the environment in which they are grown. The
safety of our food will be lost forever if our government passes the
Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) bill.
This bill will create a non-transparent body which will single-handedly clear
all genetically modified (GM) crops. Public opposition made the Karnataka
government ban field trials of GM crops in the state recently. Now we need to
get the national government to stop this bill and save our food.
You should ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the BRAI bill because it is
dangerous to health.
Public pressure helped get a moratorium on genetically modified Bt brinjal last
year. This can be achieved again. Support from lakhs of people will help put
pressure on the PM to stop this bill.
Research and tests across the world have exposed the potential health hazards of
GM food. Yet our government thinks that these are safe for human consumption.
Save your food, sign this petition now!
Thanks a billion!
