BJP leaders on Saturday took another swipe at Rahul Gandhi after NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s meeting with Gautam Adani. The duo had come together in Gujarat’s Vasna to inaugurate the country’s first lactoferrin factory. According to reports, the senior politician also visited the businessman’s residence and office in Ahmedabad.
“It was a privilege to inaugurate India’s first Lactoferrin plant Exympower at Vasna, Chacharwadi, Gujarat with Gautam Adani,” Pawar tweeted earlier on Saturday.
The development comes at a time when INDIA leaders – including Rahul Gandhi – have repeatedly fired shots at the businessman and his dealings with the Indian government.
Pawar’s bond with Adani came to the fore earlier in April, when the latter met the NCP chief at his Silver Oak residence in Mumbai. Pawar had also opposed the opposition’s demand for a joint parliamentary committee to probe the charges against the Adani group and said he would be in favor of a committee under the supervision of the Supreme Court.
“Today, Ambani-Adani names are being used (to criticize the government), but we need to think about their contribution to the country. I think other issues like unemployment, price hikes and farmers’ issues are more important,” he had said in April.
