Green energy allocations not made with any biz house in mind: Nirmala | India News

NEW DELHI: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday denied opposition allegations that Budget Allocations for green and clean energy have been made to keep Adani Corporation in mind, say it could be Conference culture benefits ‘jijas’ and ‘bhatijas’ and not of the Modi government.
In Budget 2023-24, Sitharaman provided Rs 35,000 crore for the clean energy transition — an area where the Adani Group has announced major projects, from renewable energy capacity to green hydrogen production. . This allotment tagged as ‘green growth‘ Budget.
FM said: “Kyun ki mera naam le kar ek vipaksh ke neta bole, kya Nirmala Sitharaman ne green mei itna the amount allocated to the kiya, kya itna the amount of kisiko mann mei rakhte hue allocated to the kiya? (Since an opposition leader took my name and said, does Nirmala Sitharaman allocate so much money to the green field remembering a particular individual?)
“Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, any allocation is not made to remember anyone specifically, but by keeping everyone in mind. The government keeps the country in mind. Such kind of comment is completely incorrect…” The minister said without naming any companies or individuals. She is responding to the general discussion of the Union Budget in LS.
Parliamentary proceedings were disrupted by opposition parties demanding a JPC investigation or a Supreme Court supervised investigation into allegations of financial fraud led by the Hindenburg Research based in the United States made against the Adani Corporation.
Without naming Congress, Sitharaman said there was a time when banks called to ask for loans to benefit some people. “…if phone calls are made, if relationships are beneficial, if jijajis and bhatijas (brothers-in-law and nephews) benefit, then it may be their culture. ,” she said in an apparent lashing out of the Gandhi family.
“Under Prime Minister Modi, none of us did that. And so any such allegation will be returned in the same language. I’m sorry…I am not qualified to speak this language,” said Sitharaman.
