Union home minister Amit Shah broke his silence on the Opposition’s demand to form a Joint Parliamentary Committee or JPC to probe the Adani-Hindenburg row. Speaking at India Today Conclave 2023, Shah said the Supreme Court had already taken cognizance of the matter and formed a probe committee.
Adani Group stocks had taken nose dive on the bourses after US-based activist short-seller Hindenburg Research made a litany of allegations, including fraudulent transactions and share price manipulation, against the Gautam Adani-led group, which has dismissed the allegations as lies.
The Adani Group has dismissed the charges as lies, saying it complies with all laws and disclosure requirements.
Amit Shah added that if anyone has proof, he or she should submit it before the Supreme Court committee. He also assured that “no one should be spared if something wrong has happened” and everyone should trust the judicial process.
“Our government has no confusion on the matter. What we are saying is that the Supreme Court has constituted a committee to investigate it and people should trust the judicial process,” Shah said.
