Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan today said he would look into the import of pulses in which Glyphosate herbicide has been used.

During Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, BJD's Bhartruhari Mahtab raised the issue of import of pulses in which Glyphosate, which is harmful to humans, has been used.

Mahtab demanded that the import policy should be strict to ensure that public health is protected. Replying to Mahtab, Paswan said, "we will look into it and in no way, the health of the public would be put at risk".
