Congress puts out video on Adani's ties with China; says it's a threat to national security
Chinese firm PMC has been building ports, airstrips, container terminals and electricity transmission lines in India, party claims
Calling Adani's ties with Chinese firm PMC 'a threat to national security', the Congress on Saturday released a new video to make the point.
The owner of PMC, Morris Chang, is the son of Chang Chung-Ling, who has been a director of many Adani companies over the years and is a business associate of Vinod Adani, the Congress claims.
The PMC has been building ports, airstrips, container terminals, electricity transmission lines, railway tracks and other infrastructure in India. The video also alleges that PMC filed income tax returns for 2006 and 2012 using the Adani group’s e-mail ID.
According to Adani Watch, a non-profit project set up by the Bob Brown Foundation, PMC operates from premises owned by Adani Enterprises, the flagship of the Adani Group.
"The involvement of a Chinese-owned company in the establishment of critical infrastructure in India raises questions about national security. Despite being questioned about this, the ‘nationalist’ government of Narendra Modi has responded with a deafening silence," Adani Watch has said.
Supriya Shrinate, chairperson of the Congress party's social media and digital platforms, said: "Adani has engaged a Chinese company in the strategic projects of this country. The same China that has encroached on our land, changed the name of our areas, due to which our soldiers were martyred. Isn't this treason? Adani is anti-national."
Echoing the Congress view, Faisal of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRR) asked: "China is occupying Indian territory... is this not a threat to national security? Is Adani greater than India?"
