Hindenburg-Adani row: Congress to hold countrywide protest on Feb 6
New Delhi, February 5: In the midst of the ongoing Hindenburg-Adani row, the Congress will take to the streets on Monday.
The party has decided to stage nationwide protests in front of Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) and State Bank of India (SBI) branches. The NSUI-Youth Congress will hold a protest outside the SBI and LIC offices at the Parliament Police Station in Delhi.
Congress leaders from across the country will demonstrate outside the SBI and LIC offices, with state leaders taking part.
On Monday, Congress members will demonstrate near the Gandhi statue in Parliament House.
Although the Congress is receiving support from other Opposition parties on the Adani issue, it remains to be seen whether parties such as the Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Aam Aadmi Party and Trinamool Congress, who have been seen meeting together, will join the Congress demonstration or provide moral support.
However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Janata Dal (Secular) have kept their distance from Congress on this issue.
The Opposition claims that the Adani group's investment in public sector banks such as SBI and LIC has had a significant impact on middle-class savings.
The government, according to opposition MPs, is not allowing the issue to be discussed in Parliament. Following the uproar in Parliament, the proceedings of both Houses were adjourned until February 6.
Earlier on Friday, the Congress and 16 opposition parties demanded a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) or Supreme Court-monitored investigation into the Hindunberg report, which accused the Adani Group of scam.
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has stated that the party wishes to conduct an investigation in the public interest. He also believes that the investigation into this matter should be reported on a daily basis.
