PIB rubbishes Priyanka’s claim of Adani branding of Indian Railways

The Press Information Bureau (PIB) has rubbished the claim of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra that BJP has begun branding Indian Railways as Adani’s.

The Congress leader has floated a video in which the Adani Wilmar branding appears on Indian Railways’ rolling stock.

“The Indian Railway which was made by millions of people of the country with their hard work, the BJP government has put a stamp of its billionaire friend Adani on it. Tomorrow, a large portion of railways will go to Modi Ji’s billionaire friends. Farmers of the country are fighting to stop farming and farmers from going into the hands of Modi ji’s billionaire friends,” Vadra wrote along with the 45-second video.

The video garnered over 10,000 likes, 6,500 shares since December 14 when it was posted from Priyanka Gandhi’s official account.

PIB, in response, has dubbed the video as “misleading” and claimed that the branding was not in real but just a commercial advertisement to boost the revenues of the national carrier.

“Through a video on Facebook, it is being claimed that the Indian government has put stamps of a private company on the trains. This claim is misleading, this is just a commercial advertisement with the aim of improving ‘non-rental revenue’,” said the statement issued through PIB Fact Check Twitter handle.
