Greenpeace says it may shut India operations in a month

Greenpeace India has asked its 340 employees to prepare for the organisation to shut down in a month, unless the Home Ministry unfreezes its bank accounts...The environmental NGO said...that it...has been left with funds for staff salaries and office costs that will last for just about a month” and that it will not be able to continue with its campaigns “which strived to represent the voice of the poor on issues of sustainable development, environmental justice and clean, affordable energy”...On April 9, the government blocked the NGO's bank accounts and asked it to explain why its registration should not be cancelled, claiming that Greenpeace had “prejudicially affected the economic interest of the state”.
