So, Adanis out of race for RS seat in AP!

All these days, there had been speculations that prominent industrialist Gautam Adani or his wife Priti Adani might get Rajya Sabha nomination from Andhra Pradesh on behalf of ruling YSR Congress party.

There was a talk that Adani had approached YSRC president and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and asked for the RS seat. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi recommended Adani's name for the RS seat from AP.

The speculations continued to make headlines in the news till Sunday. And Jagan is learnt to have finalised either Gautam or his wife.

But, on Sunday, Adanis, in a statement, clarified that there is no such proposal to contest the RS elections. They categorically denied plans to enter politics. 

The statement read like this: "We are aware of news reports claiming that Mr. Gautam Adani or Dr. Priti Adani is to be given a Rajya Sabha seat. These are blatantly false reports that appear whenever Rajya Sabha seats fall vacant.

"It is unfortunate to see vested interests dragging our name into such speculative media reports. Neither Mr. Gautam Adani or Dr. Priti Adani nor any member of the Adani family has interest in a political career or in joining any political group," the statement said.

Now that Adanis have given the clarification, Jagan is relieved and he has one more seat for his party aspirants. Of course, he cannot deny if the BJP recommends any other candidate for the RS seat!
