Tells Them To Drop Agenda Or Face Action
Junior home minister Kiren Rijiju on Thursday accused Greenpeace of inciting protests against industrial projects and warned global activists and aid outfits not to work against the government.
Rijiju’s warning follows a crackdown by the Modi regime on foreign-funded NGOs, including Greenpeace and the Ford Foundation, which has been criticised by the US and Indian civil society groups.
Greenpeace activists were “unnecessarily inciting innocent people against crucial projects without any valid rea son“, Rijiju said. The Union home ministry’s foreigners division, which is under Rijiju, oversaw some Rs 11,000 crore incoming aid in 2014.
