Govt scared of constituting JPC on Adani issue: Kharge

New Delhi, Apr 6 (UNI): Stepping up its attack on the BJP-led government, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday asked why the ruling dispensation was afraid of constituting a Joint Parliamentary Probe (JPC) on Gautam Adani issue.

“We (Opposition) raised various issues. Nineteen parties unitedly demanded for a JPC on Adani issue. How did the wealth of Adani within 2.5 years became Rs 12 lakh crore ? Why is the government afraid of constituting a JPC ?,” Kharge asked at a joint press conference of the Opposition parties, held at the Constitution Club here shortly after ‘Tricolour March’ from Parliament House to Vijay Chowk against the BJP government.


The Hindenburg Research report alleged the Adani Group had engaged in stock manipulation and accounting fraud schemes over the course of decades.

Kharge, who has been accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of favouring billionaire businessman Gautam Adani, in a veiled attack on Modi said, “He has a relation with him (Adani). Therefore, he is not ready for JPC.”
