India Coal Adani Ports
Interview with Indian expert on Adani
Apr 06, 2020

 

Over the course of a couple of decades, the Adani Group has become a sprawling corporate empire in India, with interests in ports, power generation, edible oils, real estate, airports and defence industries. The group’s founder and chairman, Gautam Adani, is India’s second-richest man and a close associate of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Accusations of corruption and environmental destruction have dogged the company’s rise to power.

One journalist who has followed Adani’s progress is Paranjoy Guha Thakurta. He is lead author of a book on the Adani Group soon to be published in India with the title ‘The Incredible Rise and Rise of Gautam Adani’.

Paranjoy is the doyen of hard-hitting journalism in India. He’s a broadcaster, writer, documentary maker and critic of crony capitalism. Here he speaks to Geoff Law from AdaniWatch, who visited Paranjoy in Delhi in February 2020.
