Reliance Group slams Rahul Gandhi says, Congress-led UPA awarded projects of over Rs. 1,00,000 crore to Reliance

Often lot of noise is made and rumours are spread that PM Modi Government’s is the government of top business tycoons not the common people. It is the Government of Ambanis & Adanis. It is also said that under the supervision of PM Modi Government big businessmen and defaulters are granted exemptions on the loans while the public sector banks of India (PSB) are struggling with the NPAs mess.

The Congress party and the entire opposition has always attacked PM Modi on this. It has been more than a year Congress President Rahul Gandhi is ranting the same lie that Modi Government has given Anil Ambani Rs 30,000 crore from the Rafale deal. Even after being slammed so many times still he is repeating again and again.

Recently again he attacked PM Modi Government by referring it as a government of “Crony Capitalists” and said the money for the “NYAY” scheme proposed by Congress will come from “Crony Capitalists”. And this time he is slammed by none other than the Anil Ambani’s “Reliance Group” itself for his baseless allegations

Reliance Group in a strongly worded statement has criticized Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for accusing the industrialist of being a “crony capitalism and dishonest businessman”, and pointed out that the conglomerate received projects worth Rs. 1 lakh crore when the UPA was in power for 10 years.

“We would like to remind Rahul Gandhi, that it was during the 10 year Congress-led UPA regime between 2004 and 2014 that Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group was awarded projects of over Rs. 1,00,000 crore across diverse key nation-building infrastructure sectors such as power, telecom, roads, metro by a government led by none other than Rahul Gandhi’s own political party – the Congress,” the Reliance Group statement said.

The company further attacked Congress President saying, so according to Rahul Gandhi’ s words his Government was supporting an alleged crony capitalist and dishonest businessman for 10 long years.

The statement further read “Congress party president Rahul Gandhi, in his typical cavalier fashion has continued his campaign of calumny, disinformation, distortion and malicious lies.He singled out our group chairman Anil D Ambani as allegedly a crony capitalist and dishonest businessman – all obviously patently untrue statements, As is by now, customary for all of Rahul Gandhi’s public statements, he has attributed no basis to these claims whatsoever, and neither has he provided any credible evidence at all to justify his derogatory and defamatory campaign.”

The Company also made it clear that these baseless allegations of Congress President is not going to affect them

“We at Reliance Group have chosen to ignore Rahul Gandhi’s comments with continuing patience and restraint. We likewise dismiss his latest remark as yet another one of his multiple untruthful utterances, in the heat and dust of his electoral campaign, for which he has recently been facing contempt proceedings in the highest court of the land, the Hon’ble Supreme Court,” the statement said.
