New Delhi: Stepping up its attack on the BJP-led government at the Centre over Adani issue, the Congress on Saturday categorically said the Opposition will keep continuing its demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the matter.

The Congress has been spearheading the Opposition, demanding JPC into the into the Hindenburg Research report over Adani Group.

The Hindenburg Research report alleged the Adani Group had engaged in stock manipulation and accounting fraud schemes over the course of decades.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, Congress general secretary in-charge Communications Jairam Ramesh said, ” Nineteen Opposition parties are united. Our demand is that there should be a JPC on the Adani issue.”

“There has been no communication between the Government and Opposition. No attempt made by the ruling party. We will continue our demand ,” the Congress MP said in an apparent reference to ‘logjam’ in both the Houses of the Parliament.

Referring to the Forest (Conservation) Amendment Bill, 2023, which was sent to a ‘Select Committee, the MP said, “the Forest (Conservation) Amendment Bill, 2023 should have been sent to the Standing Committee headed by me but it has gone to a Select Committee.”

Taking a dig at the BJP over the same, he said, ” There is an agenda. The target is to weaken all Environment and Forest Laws.”
