Adani row: Modi govt accuses US billionaire George Soros of conspiring against Indian democracy

Soros had reportedly said that the controversy will "weaken Modi's stranglehold on India's federal government", and open the door for "much-needed institutional reforms".

The Indian government on 17 February 2023 responded to US billionaire investor George Soros' comments on the Adani-Hindenburg controversy.

Soros had reportedly said that the controversy will "weaken Modi's stranglehold on India's federal government", and open the door for "much-needed institutional reforms". He had added that he may be "naive", but expects a "democratic revival in India".

Union minister Smriti Irani led the government's offensive against Soros on 17 February. This war is being mounted against India and what stands between the war and India's interests is Modi, Irani told reporters.

Everyone should condemn his remarks in one voice, she said. She alleged that Soros wants to destroy Indian democracy and wanted some "hand-picked" people to run the government here. He has created a fund of over USD one billion to intervene in democratic systems, including in India, she claimed.
