New Delhi: Stepping up its attack at the BJP-led government at the Centre on Adani issue, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took swipe at his former party leaders including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Azad severed his several decades association with Congress and floated his own party Democratic Azad Party, while Scindia is a Minister in the Narendra Modi-led Union Cabinet, and Sarma is the Chief Minister of Assam under the BJP-led government in the Northeastern State.

The trio have been training guns at the Gandhi family besides questioning the functioning of the Congress since they deserted the party.

The Congress leader who has been demanding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to disclose to the public about his relationship with billionaire businessman Gautam Adani since after the Hindenburg Research report on Adani Group took a dig at his former colleagues with his quirky tweet, and also questioned the government on the same.

Along with the tweet, the former Congress president also shared a graphics mentioning the names of five former party leaders, which also spell ‘Adani’.

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

“They hide the truth. So, they mislead everyday. The question remains the same whose Rs 20,000 crore benami money is in Adani’s companies,” asks the former Congress chief through his tweet.

Opposition parties has been demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Hindenburg Research report over Adani Group.

Meanwhile, Assam CM and North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) convenor hit back at the former Congress president and said,

“It was our decency to have never asked you, on where have you concealed the proceeds of crime from the Bofors and National Herald Scams.

“And how you allowed Ottavio Quattrocchi to escape the clutches of Indian justice multiple times .Any way we will meet in the Court of Law,” Sarma wrote in a twee.

Echoing a similar sentiment, Anil Atony, son of veteran Congress leader and former Union Minister AK Antony, whose name also mentioned in the Rahul Gandhi’s tweet, in a tweet wrote, “Rahul Gandhi – This is sad to see a former President of a national party – the so called PM candidate of the Congress speak like an online / social media cell troll and not like a national leader. Very humbled to see my fledgling name also with these tall stalwarts who have contributed decades for nation building work – and had to leave the party as they preferred to work for India and our people and not for a family.”

Anil Atony has joined the BJP recently.
