New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party has “nothing to hide or fear” about the Hindenburg-Adani group row.

Amit Shah said, “The Supreme Court has taken notice of this matter.

As a minister, if the Supreme Court has taken over the matter, it is not right for me to comment. “But there is nothing for the BJP to hide in it and there is nothing to fear,” Shah said, referring to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party( BJP). ’

The Congress has alleged that the Centre is “running away” from a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the Adani-Hindenburg case and if the government has nothing to hide in the matter, such an inquiry will be allowed.

Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters here, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said he has written to RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das and the Sebi chief for an impartial probe into the Adani case.

Reacting to Shah’s recent statement, Ramesh said, “If they have nothing to hide, why are they running away from the joint parliamentary committee’s probe. They don’t even allow us to raise the demand for JPC in Parliament.”

“When our leaders, including party president Mallikarjun Kharge, raised the demand for a JPC, their comments were expunged from the proceedings of the House,” he said.
