Rahul Gandhi criticized the government of India over the suspected stock manipulation by the Adani Group. He claimed that Prime Minister Modi was serving ‘2-3 billionaires‘ in India.
Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the opposition Congress party, intensified his criticism of the BJP-led national government on Saturday by asserting that the saffron party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘work for two or three billionaires’ in India, citing recent reports of the alleged stock manipulation by the Adani Group.
Gandhi cited the Financial Times findings and claimed that the article in the largest financial publication in the world stated that billionaire Gautam Adani had sent “thousands of crores of rupees from India and swollen the share prices (of his own firms)”.
The Congress MP made the remark while speaking at a rally in the election-tight Chhattisgarh. “Whether the (Congress-led) governments in Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, or the forthcoming governments in Telangana and Madhya Pradesh, will be the government of poor not the government of Adani,” he added.
The Adani Group cannot be the subject of an inquiry, he continued, “because the loss resulting from such an inquiry will not be to Adani but to someone else.”
“BJP presents a number prior to every election. They claim to receive between 230 and 250 seats. Speaking on the BJP’s setback in the Karnataka assembly elections, he added, “But every poor person in Karnataka voted for Congress.
The Congress member claimed that the right-wing movement was responsible for “breaking India’s economic backbone.” “GST and demonetisation destroyed small businessmen, and that was done deliberately,” he continued.
Rahul Gandhi said: ‘Will have Government of poor, not of Adani’….
