>From 2014 to (September) 2022 -- over (approx.) eight years of Modi rule at the Centre the wealth of Adani grew twentyfold. Over roughly the same period the Ambani group -- the second-most favoured one -- grew about 4.75 times. Indian GDP grew 1.25 times.
Now some -- almost sudden -- interesting developments, in broadly chronological order. Unexpected Twist in Adani Story (of Rise and Rise)* I. * On Jan. 24, Hindenburg Research group -- an investment research firm based in NYC -- came out with a report that claimed: Today we reveal the findings of our 2-year investigation, presenting evidence that the INR 17.8 trillion (U.S. $218 billion) Indian conglomerate Adani Group has engaged in a brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud scheme over the course of decades. * Gautam Adani, Founder and Chairman of the Adani Group, has amassed a net worth of roughly $120 billion, adding over $100 billion in the past 3 years largely through stock price appreciation in the group’s 7 key listed companies, which have spiked an average of 819% in that period. (Ref.: <https://pdffile.co.in/hindenburg-research-adani-report/> and < https://hindenburgresearch.com/adani/>.) II. It immediately triggers a sharp slide in the value of Adani group shares.

Adani threatens Hindenburg with legal action: < https://www.moneylife.in/article/adani-threatens-hindenburg-welcomes-legal-action-stocks-continue-to-crash-on-friday/69639.html >. IV. Hindenburg hits back: < https://twitter.com/HindenburgRes/status/1618602694436081668>. V. Congress flags the serious implications for the people of India and demands probe: < https://www.theweek.in/news/india/2023/01/27/hidenburg-report-congress-demands-sebi-rbi-probe-into-adani-group.html >. VI. An interesting comment: < https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/10mf54o/adani_bubble_was_going_to_burst_one_day_and_im/ >. VII. Evidently, the modality by which the GVK group was brought to its knees and made to sell the Mumbai airport to Adani for a song cannot be deployed in the instant case. That has made things too tricky for the Adani group. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Green Youth Movement" group.
