Government succumbs to pressure, NO to Bt Brinjal NOW

Prologue : The government has shown a red signal to commercial cultivation of Bt Brinjal, for now, at least. The Bt Brinjal, a genetically-modified version of the vegetable, is stated to be more resistant to pests. 
"There is no over-riding urgency to introduce it... When the public sentiments have been negative, it is my duty to adopt a cautious, precautionary and principle-based approach," he told a hurriedly-called press conference.
Epilogue : The option is productive and safe, for a hastle free croping. But, at the same time, leading to a condition like slavery. Anyway, good news for farmers.
