It is in our national interest to keep testing and using GM technology in critical areas of importance for the country where other technologies would not give effective results in the medium term. We need to identify the critical crops and traits that will require GM technology and pursue them with vigour. There is a need for large scale public education on the technology so that misconceptions being spread by vested interests are clarified in common man's mind. Let us adopt science and eliminate fiction.
