PATNA: Bihar BJP president C P Thakur on Monday asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to go ahead with the Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill in the winter session of Parliament. “This bill has major problems that require you immediate attention…It prima facie appears to be unconstitutional and I have strong objections to it because it will infringe on the authority of the state on matters related to agriculture and health, which are primarily state subjects,” Thakur said in a letter to Singh.
