‘PM Modi trying to avoid discussion in Parliament’

Gandhi’s remarks came after Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha proceedings on Monday were adjourned for the day following protests by opposition parties demanding a joint parliamentary committee probe into the allegations of stock manipulation against the Adani Group. The budget session of Parliament resumed on Monday, two days after both Houses were adjourned due to uproar by the Opposition over the Adani-Hindenburg row.
Speaking to the reporters here, Gandhi alleged that the government will put in efforts to make sure that here is no discussion on the Adani issue inside the Parliament.
“The government will try its best that no discussion takes place on the Adani issue in Parliament. The government should allow a discussion on this in the Parliament. You will see, all efforts will be made. Not the government, PM Modi will make all efforts that there is no discussion on Adani in the Parliament. There is a reason behind it. You know the reason,” the Congress MP said.

Rahul Gandhi said that, “the country should know which power is behind Adani”
“I have been raising this issue for the past 2-3 years. I want that there should be a discussion on this and everything should be clear. There should be a discussion on the corruption of crores of rupees that have taken place, and India’s infrastructure has been captured. The country should know which power is behind Adani,” he said.
Earlier today, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh came down heavily on the central government amid the ongoing Hindenburg-Adani row, saying that the Central government is running away from answering over the Adani issue.
In a tweet, Jairam Ramesh wrote, “For the third consecutive day, the opposition in Parliament was not allowed to raise the demand of JPC regarding the Adani scam. Both the houses were adjourned till 2.00 pm. It is clear that the Modi government is running away.”

A 30 January report by Hindenburg Research alleged that the Adani Group had weak business fundamentals, and was involved in stock manipulation and accounting fraud, among others. The report triggered a sell-off of shares of Adani Group companies.
The first half of the Budget session will continue till February 13 and the second half will be held from March 13 to April 6.
