In a bid to expose industrialist-politician nexus, Arvind Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption (IAC) on Wednesday accused the Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries and the two biggest national parties of being hand in glove and indulging into corrupt prices, saying both "the Congress and the BJP are in Ambani's pockets".
He also blamed the previous NDA government of providing undue benefits to the RIL in its regime. Kejriwal also demanded that the KG Basin contract be cancelled and the government should immediately put in place adequate systems to get full production from KG Basin at cheapest prices for the country.
"Hike in gas prices will benefit RIL by Rs 43,000 crore. In 2000, NDA had favoured Mukesh Ambani's Reliance. RIL keeping gas prices low to blackmail the government. Benefits to RIL causing price rise. Jaipal Reddy was replaced with Veerappa Moily to raise gas prices. Both Congress and BJP are in Mukesh Ambani's pockets. Mani Shankar Iyer was removed and Murli Deora brought in to benefit Reliance," he said.
