New Delhi: The Reliance Industries Limited on Wednesday dismissed all allegations made by anti-corruption crusaders-turned-politicians Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan saying the statements were devoid of any truth.
Reacting to the allegations made by Kejriwal and Bhushan at a press conference in New Delhi, Mukesh Ambani-led RIL issued a statement saying, "The statements made by IAC in the press conference today are devoid of any truth or substance whatsoever and are denied."
The RIL, instead, said that the KG-D6 basin is a project that the country must be proud of as it has added great economic value. The statement said, "The deep water exploration project in the KG-D6 basin has deployed the best technical resources and has been recognised by the oil and gas industry as one of the very best in its class."
"This project has added great economic value to the country and by all accounts is a project of which India can be justly proud," it further said. During the press conference of the IAC, Kejriwal had demanded that RIL's KG Basin contract should be cancelled immediately.
The RIL further termed that charges made by Kejriwal and Bhushan as irresponsible and alleged that they were made at the behest of vested interests.
"Irresponsible allegations made by IAC at the behest of vested interests without basic understanding of the complexities of a project of this nature do not merit a response," said the statement.
