When news of a Monsanto senior official's arrival from Mumbai reached the nearby village of Munjala, cotton farmers of the village Karanji, about 140 K.m. from Nagpur located the Monsanto official and took him to their field where a complete failure of ‘Paras Sudarshan’ Bt cotton seed was shown to him.
When the Monsanto representative failed to admit the lapse, he was severely beaten up by the farmers.
It was reported that even a local agriculture officer did not come to his rescue. www.salem-news.com...

It is the Indian government's fault for allowing organization such as Monsanto to deceive the ignorant. The farmers are easily fooled, but the good thing about those farmers is that if you deceive them they won't stay silent. They are ignorant, but they are not cowards.

he was just an employee, not the physical representation of monsanto. i think its more than likely the guy couldnt care less about the ideals of who he works for and was just doing his job.
its sad to see people taking delight in hearing someone got beat up.

Do you really want a place where violence is used to solve disputes? Do you know that some people kill you for being a Muslim, Sikh, or Christian in India? Citizens taking what they percieve as justice in their own hands leads to horrible crimes. You complain so much about people being too complacent in Western countries, but this lack of resorting to mob rule is one of the things that elevates quality of life.
