New Delhi, Feb 08 (KMS): In a direct attack on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi alleged that the Central government was favouring only one corporate, Adani Group, ‘who gets all the contracts, including the overseas ones’.
“Earlier he used to travel in Adani’s aircraft and now Adani travels with Modiji in his aircraft. First the matter was limited to Gujarat then the country and now he has become international,” Gandhi said on Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address.
He alleged, “The Prime Minister went to Australia and by magic, SBI gave a $1 billion loan to Adani. The PM goes to Bangladesh and then the power development board of the country signs a 25-year contract with Adani.”
“How much money Adani gave to the BJP in the last 20 years,” Rahul Gandhi asked.
He alleged that the Chairman of Sri Lanka electricity board in 2022 informed the Sri Lankan parliamentary committee “that he was told by President Rajapaksa that ‘he was pressured by Prime Minister Modi’ to give the wind power project to Mr Adani”.
“This is not India’s foreign policy. It is the policy for Adani’s business.”
He alleged that during the Bharat Jodo Yatra people asked him how one person, Adani’s worth increased from USD 8 billion to USD 140 billion between 2014 and 2022 and what is his relationship with the Prime Minister.
