Foreign-funded NGOs stalling development

NEW DELHI: An Intelligence Bureau report has accused “foreign-funded” NGOs such as Greenpeace, Cordaid, Amnesty and ActionAid of “serving as tools for foreign policy interests of western governments” by sponsoring agitations against nuclear and coal-fired power plants across the country.

The NGOs, said to be working through a network of local organizations such as PUCL and Narmada Bachao Andolan, have negatively impacted GDP growth by 2-3%, claims the IB report sent to the PMO and other government agencies.

With the newly elected government in place, the Shining Path of Development has begun to make its way forward. Apparently NGOs have received letters putting in question their FCRA status (whether or not they are allowed to take funds from abroad or not), so that we can ensure that they do no such thing as oppose environmental destruction or other critical development projects such as SEZ, nuclear power plants or hydropower dams.
