Ajit Pawar, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader in Maharashtra, criticised the Centre for failing to make a statement on the Adani situation amid Hindenburg report.
Mumbai: A US-based company called Hindenburg Research has accused the Adani Group of stock manipulation, improper use of tax havens, and money laundering. Several political parties have asked for an investigation into the conglomerate’s businesses.
Ajit Pawar, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader in Maharashtra, criticised the Centre for failing to make a statement on the situation. “The central finance ministry should interfere in the unfolding situation and make people aware of the facts.” “Why do none of the senior authorities speak out about it?” he asked.
The Central Government should clarify the official position on the matter in light of the accusations and counter-allegations made by a foreign agency against one of our industry’s top figures, Pawar said.
He also expressed concern for the economy because of the foreign investments made by these firms. “Any doubt about it could result in significant losses for the country and the world.” If the centre has finished its study, they should come forward and explain the situation, Pawar said.
On BBC documentary
During a press conference, Ajit Pawar was questioned about the recent debate surrounding a BBC documentary about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Pawar further added that the screening of news stories or documentaries should not disrupt the law and order situation. However, if it creates unrest and violence in society, it can be evaluated by the relevant authorities and dealt with appropriately.
