Adani Group: The Adani Group has issued a statement drawing attention to recent “bribe-for-questions” allegations against Trinamool Congress (TMC) Member of Parliament (MP) Mahua Moitra, highlighting the need to address potential improprieties. The Adani Group, a prominent Indian conglomerate, expressed concerns over allegations that some groups and individuals have been working to harm its reputation and market standing.
A Supreme Court lawyer recently filed a formal complaint with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), submitting a sworn affidavit outlining what he described as an “elaborate criminal conspiracy.” This alleged conspiracy centers around the actions of TMC MP Mahua Moitra and Darshan Hiranandani, the CEO of the Hiranandani Group.
The Hiranandani Group has denied the allegations of bribing the TMC MP
The complaint alleges that Moitra and Hiranandani orchestrated a plan to specifically target Gautam Adani, one of India’s most influential business figures, and his conglomerate of companies by using a series of parliamentary questions. The Hiranandani Group has denied the allegations of bribing the TMC MP.
According to the complaint, Moitra received bribes and a range of undue favors from Hiranandani as part of this alleged quid pro quo arrangement. As a result, another MP forwarded the complaint to the Lok Sabha Speaker, calling for an investigation into Moitra’s actions and her suspension from the House.

In light of these allegations, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey has written a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker, requesting the formation of an inquiry committee to investigate the matter further. The case has added fuel to the already charged political atmosphere in India, with various political parties taking sides in the controversy.
This situation highlights the significance of ethical conduct within India’s political and business sectors and raises questions about the role of parliamentarians and corporate entities in the legislative process. The Adani Group’s statement underscores the need for a transparent and thorough investigation to address these allegations and determine their accuracy. The developments surrounding this case are sure to continue attracting attention and remain an important issue in the Indian political landscape.
