Adani gets trolled for tweet favouring demonetisation
Amid the controversies raging around demonetisation, Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani was trolled mercilessly on Twitter after he tweeted in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “fight to menace black money”.
Adani, who is said to have benefited for his association with Modi, had offered his Group planes for Modi during the Lok Sabha campaign of 2014.
Twitterati reviewed Adani’s tweet as funny because the biggest black money case that has come up before the Special Investigation Team, led by a retired Supreme Court judge, to look into black money.

Adani has been accused of syphoning a huge amount of black money in foreign countries. Josy Joseph, an award-winning journalist, explains the details of this case in his book, A Feast of Vultures: The Hidden Business of Democracy in India.
“According to a senior ED official associated with the SIT, if the Adani case reaches its logical conclusion, the group will have to pay a fine of around Rs 15,000 crore. ‘It is a watertight case,’ he said, about the trail of documents showing how the group diverted Rs 5,468 crore to Mauritius via Dubai. The Adani group vehemently denies any wrongdoing. Modi, after his rhetoric-filled ride to power, has been silent,” writes Josy.
The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence and the Enforcement Directorate told the SIT that the Adani group allegedly syphoned this huge amount using inflated bills for the import of power equipment from South Korea and China.
Here are more tweets that say Adani’s tweet is solid evidence to prove that demonetisation is a failure.
