It’s no secret that NGOs are feeling the heat under the Modi regime. Office-bearers of registered NGOs were required to appear in person before ministry officials this year for getting their annual grants cleared. Some theatre groups registered as NGOs had reportedly been told to prepare plays on the government’s Swachh Bharat campaign and take them to schools. The plays had to be videographed and uploaded on YouTube. Other NGOs have been asked to junk their activities in favour of other pet government projects like Skilling India.
