IB on NGO :- When IB identified that some NGO are negatively impacting Economy and submitted it's report in 2014 , it was quite guessed already that there will be huge criticism for sure but only from the p.o.v of politics . But what IB submitted in its 24 page report was also trustworthy , why I am saying this , let's see :- 1. A significant no. Of ngo were funded by UK US Netherlands and other Scandinavian countries which were using fund to create an environment which lends itself to stalling development projects. 2. The negative impact on Economy was assesed to be 2-3% P.A. as reported that 7 sectors project were stalled becauseof NGo created Agitation against nuke power plant , uranium projects etc. 3. Report stated that NGO have plans for future too . 4. Earlier , HR , Poverty , Hunger was issue which were chosen by int. Org. To discredit india at global forum . But the shift in choice of issue was Growth retarding campaigns . 5. In recent times , NGO had become centric player in many field as it remain active and breathable because of funds that they receive from Foreign and which give them the power to bottleneck the growth and other progressive agenda of govt.
The course is too short.Wish we Indians made just this many mistakes.
Except the explanation given for 'I have a doubt', all the other points are quite useful. Could you please explain in detail why 'I have a doubt' is wrong?
I have doubt means that you are doubting on someone not about the question. I think so
