Intelligence Bureau says Foreign-funded NGOs are stalling development - activists deny, says attempt to undermine

On May 3, 2014, Intelligence Bureau’s report on impact of NGOs on development was leaked. The report has accused "foreign-funded" NGOs 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  as People’s Union for Civil Liberties and Narmada Bachao Andolan. Addressed to Prime Minister's Office, the report alleges that the "areas of action" of the foreign-funded NGOs include anti-nuclear, anti-coal and anti-Genetically Modified Organisms protests. The NGOs and activists have condemned the allegations. This page tracks news articles, comments by the NGOs and activists and commentaries on the issue.
