Gautam Adani has become one of the richest men in the world primarily due to the largess received by his company from the Government of Gujarat. Adani has remained one the closest confidants of Mr. Narendra Modi and, along with other top industrialists, is a staunch votary of Modi for the post of Prime Minister. Not surprisingly, in Modi’s mega campaign for the top job of the country, Adani’s contribution has been enormous. His jet plane carries Modi all over the country and has become Modi’s official carrier. Recently one of the sleekest jets of Adani’s stable, the Challenger 605, carried Modi to his Karnataka meeting on February 18th, 2014.
Adani’s Challenger 605 shown in the pictures above can be seen in the backdrop as Modi is received by BJP’s Karnataka President Prahlad Joshi at the airport on February 18th, 2014. Not surprisingly, the bond between Adani and Modi is so deep and firm that when US Ambassador Nancy Powell recently met Modi on February 13th, 2014, it was Adani who organized a dinner party for her later in the day.
Can a common man ever dream to be part of this coterie and be a member of this jet club?
