Kejriwal Targets Modi Over Undue Favours to Adani Group

Arvind Kejriwal today brought Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the line of fire alleging that he favoured Gujarat-based business house Adani Group on power purchase and land allotment besides giving gas fields worth Rs 20,000 crore to private companies for "free".

Questioning Modi's credentials as 'vikas purush' and claims about his honesty, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convener Kejriwal and his associate Prashant Bhushan levelled a series of charges against Modi targeting him for allegedly allowing Adanis to "walk away" with coal blocks without supplying power at cheaper rates as per agreements.

At a press conference here, they accused Modi of allocating prime land in Gandhi Nagar for MPs and MLAs who in turn sold it at higher prices and land allocation to Adanis at "throwaway" prices while asking eight times the market price when Air Force approached his government for land.

Rejecting the allegations, Adani Group spokesperson said they deny "all allegations/statements made by Arvind Kejriwal of AAP" against them.

On the gas field allocation, Kejriwal said Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) was allocated gas fields worth around Rs one lakh crore in KG Basin and Modi allegedly gave 10 per cent each of the fields to a Canadian and an Indian company "completely free of cost" without any bidding.

Anwar, he must be throwing pretty monumental quantities of dust to achieve what he has so far.

It is time this Modi was exposed for what he is, a wheeler and dealer who habitually throws dust in the eyes of people.

 Arvind Kejriwal is about to lose his credibility completely. And in the process also undermine the credibility of other present and future anti corruption movements. And that would be so sad. He should have focussed on big item water tight cases institutional cases rather than trying to play this silly game of ensuring balance between targeting the family and the BJP.
