Madhya Pradesh, whose capital saw the world's worst industrial disaster in 1984, made a common cause with Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan on Thursday in seeking a ban on endosulfan.
Writing separate letters to the Kerala CM and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, MP's Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare Minister Ramkrishna Kusmaria said he fully supports the crusade against toxic chemicals. "MP understands the dire consequences of manmade disaster," Kusmaria said in his letter to Achuthanandan, while referring to the Bhopal gas tragedy that took thousands of lives.
