Allegation against Adani Group must be cleared: BSP supremo Mayawati

Lucknow, January 28: On Saturday, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said that the Union government should clear the air over financial irregularities allegations levelled by Hindenburg Research against the Adani Group.

Hindenburg Research is a US US-based investment research firm which specializes in activist short-selling and has alleged that Adani Group was "engaged in a brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud".

Mayawati said, "For the past two days, a negative report of American firm Hindenburg in relation to Adani Group and its effects on stock market etc is in discussions more than the Republic Day. The hard-earned money of crores of people of the country is involved but the government is silent."

"After the allegation of cheating etc in shares, Adani's property and world ranking has decreased, but people are more worried about what will happen to the huge investment made by the government in his group. What will happen to the economy? Restlessness and worry is natural. The solution is needed," she further said.

The BSP chief asked the government to clear the air by issuing a statement to "address the worries of the people".

"At the beginning of the budget session of Parliament starting from January 31, the government should issue a detailed statement on this matter in both the Houses so that the restlessness, especially among the urban middle class, is reduced," she added.

Hindenburg said its two-year investigation reveals that "the Rs 17.8 trillion (USD 218 billion) Indian conglomerate Adani Group has engaged in a brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud scheme over the course of decades."
