With the opposition targeting the BJP-led government over the Hindenburg-Adani row, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that it will not be appropriate for him to comment as the Supreme Court has taken cognizance of the matter but there is nothing “for the BJP to hide or be afraid of”.
The Hindenburg-Adani row has turned into a major political controversy with the Congress and other opposition parties making allegations of favouritism and crony capitalism against the government.
During the budget session of parliament, the opposition party raised an issue demanding a joint parliamentary committee probe and also target prime minister Narendra Modi on the issue.
They have sought questions over the investment of LIC and some public sector banks in the Adani group.
The government has declined the allegations with PSUs and regulatory bodies also issuing statements about their following the norms and acting to their mandates.
The Centre on Monday informed the Supreme Court that SEBI had agreed to constitute a committee to protect investor interests following Hindenburg’s report on the Adani Group.
