Why is PM Narendra Modi still silent on the Adani scam? The Rs 20,000 in Adani industry belongs to whom? The public has the right to know.
Mumbai: Irrespective of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar’s opinion, there must be a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) inquiry to find out the truth about the Adani scam, remarked Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) President Nana Patole.
From where did the Rs 20,000 crores via shell companies come into the Adani group? Who does the money belong to? The people of the country have the right to know this. Rahul Gandhi has made this demand and various political parties in the country including the Congress have demanded that the Adani scam should be investigated by a joint parliamentary committee, the MPCC chief added.
Speaking on the issue, the MPCC president Nana Patole said that although there is a majority of the ruling party in the JPC, members of other parties are also in the committee. “A probe by the JPC is necessary for the facts of the Adani scam to come out. A court appointed committee was set up after the allegations of a coal scam during the UPA government but a joint parliamentary committee was set up on the demand of the opposition. Even though MP Sharad Pawar has a different opinion on the Adani scam, the Congress is firm on its demand of a JPC probe”, he added further.
Money from LIC, State Bank of India, EPFO was illegally invested by the Modi government in the Adani group. Hindenburg report exposes malpractices in Adani group and puts forward the question of whether the public money is safe? Why is Prime Minister Narendra Modi not talking about the Adani scam when it is such a big and serious issue? What is the reason to panic if there is nothing wrong? said Nana Patole.
