By Supriya Bhardwaj: The Congress has decided to intensify agitation demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the allegations against Adani Group by US short-seller Hindenburg Research.

Shares of Adani Group’s listed companies have tanked since January 25, just a day after a US short seller, Hindenburg Research, came out with the explosive report.

Congress general secretary KC Venugopal in a statement said the Hindenburg report, accusing the Adani Group of stock manipulation, improper use of tax havens and money laundering, has exposed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led government’s policy of crony capitalism in favour of Gautam Adani.

“At a time of deep economic distress, PM Modi has been selling the nation’s critical infrastructure to the Adani Group, bending India’s foreign policy and forcing public institutions like SBI and LIC to invest in the Adani group. The recent revelations have shown that crores of rupees of poor and middle-class people’s savings are at risk,” he said.


The Congress, amping up its attack on the Centre, has asked all state committees to arrange press conferences and agitational activities in all districts.

Block-level agitations will be organised in front of offices of public banks and LIC between March 6-10 all over the country, the statement read.

“Massive rallies will be organised in all state capitals in April and these will be addressed by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and other national-level leaders,” KC Venugopal said in the statement.

“All the state-level senior leaders, MPs, MLAs/MLCs and other elected representatives, leaders of frontal organisations, departments and cells and party workers have been asked to participate in all of these agitational programmes,” he added.
