New Delhi, Oct 12: Although Mukesh Ambani has welcomed his brother, Anil Ambani's move to wave the white flag in the gas dispute, he contends that the 'negative, calumnious and malafide campaign launched by Anil Ambani group against RIL' makes it hard to believe that Anil Ambani has had a 'change of heart'.
A statement by RIL on behalf of the chairman reads, “Sadly, the conduct of R-ADAG so far makes it difficult for RIL to believe that Anil Ambani had a real change of heart. For last many years Anil Ambani had indulged in a malicious campaign against RIL and its chairman (Mukesh). The campaign reached its nadir in recent months through a vicious series of advertisements unprecedented in India's corporate history."
The statement also expressed regret over the way truce was offered, stating "what is both saddening and perplexing is that Anil Ambani has yet against sought to communicate to RIL and its chairman through the public domain, whereas he could have easily contacted his elder brother directly."
Further, the statement clarified that the dispute was not a family matter as Anil was making it seem.
"RIL does not belong to a family. It belongs to shareholders, to the associates who have made this journey possible and most importantly to the nation, India," it said.
