Principle and procedure

The court ruling on AAP MLAs is a slap on the face of Election commission of India. It is the

institution that need to advise president of India / governor of the state on the disqualification of

MPs/MLAs.

As Quasi Judicial body, election commission of India is expected to follow principles of Natural

Justice. The Right to be heard is an important principle and it is violated. so, procedure and principle

are essential in dealing with quasi Judicial decisions.

A perfect storm in the cotton field.

Bt cotton in India is affected by pink bollworm infestation. Unlike other countries it is an exceptionally happening in India. The reasons are

1, India, hybrids not open pollinated varieties are genetically modified. These Hybrid varieties are bushy, need longer time to grow cotton. Bollworm is infesting them after 160 days. In other countries crop is grown less than 160 days.

 

2. Genetically, Indian btcotton is hemizygous. Bt gene is introduced in only one of the parents. On the other hand, seeds in other countries are homozygous. Gene is introduced in both the parents. so, all seeds have toxin to kill bollworm.
