Greenpeace a threat to India: IB to PMO
New Delhi, June 11: An Intelligence Bureau (IB) report about foreign-funded non-government organizations (NGOs) negatively affecting India's economic development has said that Greenpeace, an NGO, is a threat to the country's economic security, an Indian Express report has revealed.

The intelligence report said the NGO was involved in protests against nuclear and coal plants and funding "sympathetic" research to allegedly favour a candidate of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the recently held Lok Sabha election, the IE report added.

According to the IE report, the adverse effect of the NGO's role on the country's GDP will be 2-3 per cent per annum. In the report, IB Joint Director SA Rizvi accused the Greenpeace of violating laws to alter the dynamics of India's energy mix. It also said that Greenpeace was also preparing to take on India's IT sector over e-waste, the IE story said.

The IB 21-page report featured names of several NGOs and it mentioned seven projects that got disrupted by NGO-created agitations.
