Adani Row: SC Panel Will be More Useful than JPC, says Pawar

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar on Saturday opined that a Supreme Court committee will be more useful and effective in the probe into the charges against the Adani group. He added that he is not completely opposed to a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe.

Speaking to the media, Pawar said in a JPC with 21 members, 15 will be from the ruling party and six from the Opposition due to numerical strength in Parliament, which will create doubts on the panel.

“I am not completely opposed to the JPC…there have been JPCs and I have been a chairman of some of the JPCs. The JPC will be constituted on the basis of majority (in Parliament). Instead of a JPC, I am of the opinion the Supreme Court committee is more useful and effective,” Pawar said.

One foreign company takes a position about the situation in the country. We should decide how much focus should be on this. Instead of this (JPC), a Supreme Court panel is more effective,” Pawar added.

In an interview to NDTV, Pawar had openly supported the Adani Group and criticised the narrative around Hindenburg Research’s report on the conglomerate.
