People of Kerala have come together to fight for banning endosulfan.
Some political leaders have alienated themselves from the fight against the deadly poisonous pesticide accusing others of politicising the issue. Actually they are the ones who are politicising it. Has Sainaba, the poor girl with gigantic head and small body, got any politics, or Kavitha, Vishnu or the thousands of mentally and physically retarded who have died or still suffering in Kasargod are members of any political party?
Every one in Kerala knows well that as result of the use of endosulfan the people in Kasargod are still suffering. The poison is there in the air, water and soil in Kasargod and the future generations also will suffer from it. The pictures and reports have been coming regularly in the print and visual media. Even after knowing well the after effects of endosulfan why these politicians turn away from the sufferings of the people?
The are scared that somebody else will take the credit in case of the success of the struggle.Is it such a trivial thing to thot like that?Are they concerned with the vote of the people for coming into power?
These guys should understand that If endosulfan is banned it will be the victory of the people.
