Reliance Group serves a 1000 crore defamation notice to Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam

Reliance Group has served a Rs 1000 crore defamation notice to Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam for labelling “false and baseless” allegations against the company. The company will file a contempt petition against Sanjay Nirupam in the Bombay High Court.

“Nirupam has made several false, frivolous and baseless allegations and defamatory statements in relation to the proposed sale of Reliance Infrastructure’s integrated Mumbai power business to Adani Transmission and linking it with the purchase of Rafale fighter aircraft by the government from France,” the company said in a statement.

Sanjay Nirupam had alleged that the “takeover” of RInfra by Adani Enterprises Ltd was executed at the behest of Prime Minister Modi to bail out Anil Ambani. He has denied receiving any such notice and welcomed the decision by RInfra. He said, “Now let everything get discussed in the court, including the deal in question. Even the court can scrutinise the deal, which according to me is shady.”

The Reliance Group wants Sanjay Nirupam to withdraw his allegations and apologize for his remarks within 72 hours after the receipt of the notice.
