Adani Group seeks action against fake news wrongdoers
Adani Group has written a letter to Union Minister for Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad over a planned attempt to malign the reputation of the prominent business houses through fake news on Twitter to systematically wreak havoc even as the Centre has launched a campaign focusing on making India self-reliant in various sectors to promote investments and generate jobs locally.The company sought Prasad's intervention, stating that "as a country, we must address this nexus of foreign-funded activism against Indian companies". "A planned attempt to malign the reputation of the prominent business houses through fake news on Twitter, urging several Twitterati to participate in a 'Tweetstorm', to systematically wreak havoc has surfaced when the Indian government has launched a campaign focusing on making India self-reliant in various sectors to promote investments and generate jobs locally," Adani Group wrote in the letter. "It is vital to determine the source of these conspiratorial operations targeting Indian institutions and businesses in order to protect public monies invested in such businesses," the company said in the letter, a copy of which was accessed by ANI.
