PM protecting Adani by not ordering probe: Rahul

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was protecting industrialist Gautam Adani by not ordering an inquiry into allegations of stock manipulation and accounting fraud made by United States-based investment firm Hindenburg Research.

The Wayanad MP, while interacting with journalists, claimed that the prime minister is “shell-shocked” and did not answer any of the questions that he had posed about the Bharatiya Janata Party government’s role in the meteoric rise of Adani.

“I had not asked any complicated questions,” Gandhi said. “I had only asked how many times he [Adani] had travelled with you, how many times you had met him there. Those were simple questions but there were no answers.”

Gandhi said he is not satisfied with Modi’s response. “If Adani is not his friend, he [Modi] should have said that an investigation will be carried out,” he said. “Shell companies have been made, benami funds are being circulated, but the prime minister did not say anything about it. It is clear that the prime minister is shielding him [Adani].”
