Thursday saw the heat of the Hindenburg report on Adani Group setting the parliament on fire. Both houses of the parliament were adjourned, after leaders of several Opposition parties demanded a discussion over the report. 

It may be recalled that the opposition parties had been demanding a reply from the government on the US-based short-seller Hindenburg Research's allegations against the Gautam Adani-led Group. 

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned till 2 PM amid ruckus over the issue. Sources state that the opposition leaders had come together earlier to make a strategy to take on the central government during the Budget Session, and decided to seek a discussion on the Adani Group issue before the budget discussion.

The opposition later held a press conference at the Vijay Chowk on this issue. “We wanted a discussion on that. Our notices get rejected. When we raise important issues, no time is given for discussion on them. Money of poor people is there in LIC, SBI and other national banks & it is being given to selected companies. Either a Joint Parliamentary Committee or a team under the supervision of the CJI of the Supreme Court should investigate this,” said Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge.
