A lawyer for the Adani group has caused sleepless nights in the conglomerate’s legal division. The company claimed that its real estate lawyer in Chennai threatened to release privileged information about its 648 MW solar plant in Tamil Nadu if his fee wasn’t hiked  nearly three times. The high court has sealed the advocate’s lips for the time being, but listed out all the allegations that he levelled against the comp­any, including fraudulent transactions. Now, state and central authorities have been forced to consider probing the charges. Meanwhile, the company has decided to review most of its consultant lawyers in the country.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s endorsement of Aadhar and announcement of a legislation to give it statutory status has led to raised eyebrows. Remember, the National Identification Authority of India Bill was rejected by a parliamentary standing committee on fin­ance headed by BJP’s Yashwant Sinha a few years ago. The government wants to take the executive route and pass the Aadhar Bill as a Money Bill to ensure it gets passed this time, superseding the judiciary or the Rajya Sabha. Interestingly, last year a parliamentary committee on finance led by Congress’s Veerappa Moily pushed hard for a statutory status for Aadhar.
