‘Subhash Chandra Foundation’s initiative a welcome sign’

Rajya Sabha member and former Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Amar Singh, who is a close associate of Subhash Chandra, the chairman of Essel Group who proposed to acquire AgriGold, on Saturday said a collective effort should be made to render justice to the depositors and it should have no political motives.

Addressing the media after having darshan of goddess Kanakadurga atop Indrakeeladri here, Mr. Singh said the coming forward of the Subhash Chandra Foundation to take over the assets of AgriGold would augur well for the depositors.

Mr. Singh said he was in touch with Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to find a solution to the problem.

Lauding the “excellent” cooperation from the Chief Minister and Director- General of Police N. Sambasiva Rao in settling the dispute, he asserted that all the depositors would be fully compensated as per the court orders.

Promises support

Mr. Singh further said that he would extend all help for the development of Andhra Pradesh, and appreciated the efforts of Mr. Naidu to achieve the goal despite many odds.
