As always, you can count on The Hindu to probe a little more.

If you haven’t already, do give the Environment minister Jairam Ramesh’ notes on why he made the decision for a moratorium on Bt Brinjal. It seems he really listened – to the states, to scientists, and finally his own conscience before making the decision.

That’s Indian democracy for you – mostly noisy, utterly chaotic, slow in response, and yet effective at times.
