VJAS said that the AAP, on one hand, is giving ticket to a candidate who is a close associate of Sharad Joshi- a farm leader and supporter of GM Bt cotton seeds who is anti to Food Security Act, on the other hand it is simultaneously giving a ticket to Medha Patkar, a well-known social activist.
“Obviously, there is a communication gap among AAP leaders, which is unfortunate,” said VJAS statement.
Kishore Tiwari said that with the monopoly, particularly of Monsanto, in the sale of GM Bt cotton seeds in Vidarbha, cultivating cotton as a cash crop was becoming too expensive for small farmers.
“Today, we only have to depend on GM Bt cotton seeds since indigenous seeds are unavailable. In a situation where cotton cultivation is unsustainable, food security for farmers is of utmost importance. Therefore, our worry is what if such candidates come to power and ignore the needs of small farmers- constituting around 3 million cotton farmers and 5 million food starved tribals of Vidarbha region,” he asked anxiously.
Recently, the AAP had said, “It is to be remembered that seed sovereignty is akin to national sovereignty in an agrarian country like ours and it is unacceptable that the UPA government plans to sell our swaraj/sovereignty lock stock and barrel to bio-tech seed companies.”
