With all struggling, how did Adani’s wealth rise by 50%, asks Rahul Gandhi
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday asked how did business tycoon Gautam Adani manage to increase his wealth by 50% while everyone else was struggling due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rahul Gandhi’s remarks come after a new report said that Adani’s net worth has jumped $16.2 billion in 2021 to $50 billion, more than anyone else in the world.
“How much did your wealth increase in 2020? Zero. You struggle to survive while he makes Rs 12 lakh crore and increases his wealth by 50 per cent. Can you tell me why?” Gandhi tweeted.
According to the report, Adani has beaten Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezo and Tesla CEO Elon Musk
