In August, Greenpeace activists unfurled a banner reading 'Dr Singh Defend Forests Not Coal Scams' on Rajpath, the road leading to the Prime Minister's Office, on the day Parliament was debating the CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General of India) report. Greenpeace demands the cancellation of all coal block allocations made in the period covered by the CAG audit. The organisation is also calling for a moratorium on any further allocation and forest clearances for coal mining.
