New Delhi: Officials of the Government of India have said that the source of the Power Point Toolkit that celebrity environment activist Greta Thunberg tweeted was put together by a Canada-based pro-Khalistan organisation, Times of India reported.
Quoting senior government sources the report said said the kit, aimed at damaging India’s interests, was prepared by ‘Peace For Justice’, a body co-founded by a self-declared Khalistan supporter Mo Dhaliwal who is based in Vancouver, Canada.
The PowerPoint presentation detailed the list of tasks.
Some of the heads mentioned in the toolkit were “disrupt ‘yoga and chai’ image of India in general”, “unified global disruption in the diaspora on January 26” and “repeal of farm laws”.
“The documents shared mistakenly by Greta shows how tweets by Rihanna and others weren’t organic and were part of a larger campaign to malign India. This makes it important to see all such statements/tweets by important people in India and abroad in the context of the planned and pre-scripted campaign,” a senior government functionary who insisted on remaining anonymous said.
He cited the investigation launched by Delhi Police into the origin of the toolkit which BJP on Thursday slammed as a “schoolkit of anarchy”.
Union minister V K Singh claimed in a Facebook post that Thunberg’s deleted tweet had revealed the real designs of a conspiracy at an international level against India.
The toolkit, with ‘Will you be part of the largest protest in human history?’ as the headline on its cover, has taglines like ‘#AskIndiaWhy’ and ‘Global Farmers Strike – First Wave’.
The strap on the page reads, “To stand up against India’s failing democracy (at the behest of the fascist ruling party, RSS-BJP)” and “To stand up against unregulated corporatisation of the farming sector”.
