Naveen Jindal offered Congress party support to Madhu Koda in exchange of coal block: CBI

By NewsGram Staff Writer

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday filed a chargesheet against industrialist Naveen Jindal for promising Congress party support to former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda in exchange for the Amarkonda Murgadangal coal block.

According to the chargesheet filed by CBI, Naveen Jindal requested Koda to recommend his two companies, Jindal Steel & Power Ltd (JSPL) & Gagan Sponge Iron Pvt Ltd (GSPL), for allocation of Amarkonda Murgadangal coal block. Jindal promised him the support of Congress which will help him in continuing as Chief Minister of Jharkhand.

The charge sheet stated that, Koda had won the assembly election as independent candidate and had not joined any political party. Even after being chief minister, his government was not very stable. The promise of Congress support to stabilize his government and help him in completing his term was an assurance/favour extended by Naveen Jindal to Madhu Koda in lieu of the recommendation of allocation of coal block.

Expressing concern over the chargesheet, the JSPL spokesperson said, “We are shocked to know from the media about filing of a chargesheet by CBI with respect to the allocation of a coal block. The said allocation was made to the company on merits. During the course of the investigation, the company and its officials fully co-operated with the authorities, and whenever asked, explained and provided all the supporting documents.”

The spokesperson, “JSPL will reiterate its confidence that it will stand vindicated at the end of the ongoing judicial process.”

“We deny all allegations made against our company and its management. We will be availing appropriate remedy in accordance with law,” he further added.
