New Delhi: In a significant development, the Central government has found that UAE Red Crescent is a government agency and not a humanitarian organisation.
Following the latest finding, the Centre has come to an inference that the Kerala government did not seek permission in the the Life Mission Project at Wadakkanchery and it was a violation of protocol. The Centre is therefore likely to seek explanation from the state government.
Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs has reiterated that the Kerala government had signed the MoU, to cooperate with Red Crescent, without Centre’s approval. Not only that, the UAE Red Crescent did not have permission to function in India.
