New Delh, May 02 (UNI) Reminding the United States of the 'Green Revolution' that made India self-sufficient in food production under the Prime Ministership of Indira Gandhi, the Congress today said India did not want advice from any quarter in the matter of food security.

Slamming US President George Bush for holding India's higher consumption responsible for the global rise in prices of foodgrains, AICC Spokesman Manish Tewari told mediapersons that India had not looked back on food production in the past three decadeds because of the impact of the 'Green Revolution.' "India is well aware of its problems and capable of finding solutions to them," he said, while pointing out that India was in the process of launching its second 'Green Revolution" to enhance and consolidate the food security.

"So I don't think we require any kind of guidance from anybody else to resolve our food requirements," Mr Tewari added.
