The district unit of the KRRS has launched a programme opposing the use of genetically modified (GM) seeds with the slogan ‘Andhu Uppu, Indhu Beeja' at Kollegal town here on Saturday.
General secretary Honnur Prakash flagged off an awareness jatha about non-GM seeds. He alleged that the nation's leaders were supporting MNCs in the name of food security.
He said the jatha would move to Chamarajanagar via Yelandur where a convention will be held on Sunday.
District unit president Mahesh Prabhu will preside over the convention.
