Chinese companies and the alleged use of tax havens to evade taxes. The opposition parties have demanded an investigation into the matter and have accused the government of being soft on the Adani Group.The opposition's attempt to march to the ED headquarters is the latest in a series of protests against the Adani Group and the government's alleged favoritism towards it.
