Hindenburg-Adani row: Congress launches nationwide protests

The Congress launched a countrywide campaign over the Hindenburg-Adani row by staging protests in different parts of the country on Monday.

A protest was staged over the Adani issue by congress members in Telangana outside the State Bank of India office in Hyderabad. A protest was also held in Jammu by congress.

 A video showing protesters clashing with the police, circulated the internet. The protesters were also raising anti- BJP slogans.

The student wing of Congress in Delhi was also demanding a Joint Parliament Committee probe over Adani row.

The opposition is arguing that the investment of the Adani group in public sector banks such as the SBI and LIC has a big impact on the savings of the middle class.

The opposition also protested near the Gandhi statue outside the Parliament and demanded for a Joint Parliament Committee investigation or Supreme Court-monitored probe into the Hindenburg-Adani row.

Although the Congress is getting the support of other opposition parties on the Adani issue, it has to be seen whether the parties such as the Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Aam Aadmi Party and Trinamool Congress, which are seen together in the meetings, will join the Congress demonstration or extend moral support.
However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Janata Dal (Secular) have kept their distance from Congress on this issue.
