Activists to launch Jaivik Kranti against GM crops

A group of activists promoting organic farming today launched jaivik kranti (organic revolution) against genetically modified crops and use of pesticides in agriculture for protecting biodiversity through a five-year action plan.
The group also organised a dialogue today where state government representatives from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana held discussions on farmer suicides, biodiversity loss, drought situation in the country and pulses and oil seed crises.
The group will target 11 states and 101 cities across the country to create 1001 javik grams (organic villages) with the support of 5,000 local womens food processing units. Each jaivik gram will have a seed bank and an operation ghani (cold press) and chakki (flour mill).
