Teesta Setalvad & Greenpeace vs Rajnath Singh It was a tough year for NGOs. Rajnath’s home ministry froze Green­pe­ace’s foreign funds, even deplaned activist Priya Pillai from a for­eign flight while Teesta Setalvad’s NGOs—in the forefront of the post-Gujarat riots battles—are facing legal wrangles aplenty. Both NGOs con­tinue to land a few, but this is clearly an unequal fight.
