The main opposition Congress party is planning also nationwide protests Monday to highlight the risks to millions of small investors because of the exposure of state-owned institutions in Adani's businesses and draw attention to the embattled tycoon's links with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Congress party will protest in front of the offices of Life Insurance Corporation and State Bank of India, general secretary K. C. Venugopal, said in a statement. "The government can't jeopardize the hard earned money of the people of India to profit the crony friends of the prime minister."
Opposition parties are also demanding Modi's government order an investigation into the crisis that's hit Adani Group companies, a fallout of allegations of widespread fraud and market manipulation from US short seller Hindenburgh Research. Parliament was disrupted Thursday as opposition lawmakers shouted anti-Adani slogans.
