Nirmala Sitharaman denies Center allegations favoring Ambani and Adani

New Delhi:

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday dismissed claims that the Modi government was only working for “Ambani and Adani” and said opposition-led states were also signing deals with the two main business houses.

The minister, responding to a debate on rising prices in the Lok Sabha, said the Congress government of Rajasthan had signed two renewable energy-related deals with Adani Group a day after Rahul Gandhi, during a speech in Jaipur, accused the Center of working for the two industrial conglomerates.

“…and people in Congress repeatedly accuse us of being ‘Ambani-Adani sarkar’,” she said.

Ms. Sitharaman further said that the Congress party’s alliance partner, DMK, which is ruling Tamil Nadu, has also signed deals with Adani Group to set up data centers.
