Reliance Industries fights back against Gas Wars ‘pamphlet’, releases 56-page ‘Flame of Truth eBook’ to battle ‘lies and half-truths’

Flame of Truth!
Flame of Truth!
After threatening to sue the authors and publishers of the book Gas Wars – Crony Capitalism and the Ambanis in April for Rs 100 crore, Reliance Industries (RIL) yesterday issued a press release to announce the release of a 56-page presentation and promotional video with “facts you didn’t know about KG-D6” – the oil and gas field at the heart of claims by Gas Wars’ authors that the company has been exploiting its allotment natural resources that should belong to the people.

Reliance had denounced the 588-page Gas Wars book as a pamphlet in its April defamation claim, launched in parallel to a legal notice by RIL promoter Mukesh Ambani’s brother Anil Ambani, who were respectively advised by Khaitan & Co and Mulla & Mulla [follow link for notices].

RIL’s glossy virtual coffee table book with large pictures of the company’s drilling operations, pithy text and chapter headlines such as “failed basin is now a flame of hope” and “the one dollar myth”, claims that exploring for oil and gas is complex and a “risky business” rather than a licence for the company to make “windfall” profits, as its detractors allege.

RIL press release

Last financial year, Reliance Industries Limited saw several false allegations, outright lies and half-truths against its Oil and Gas Exploration and Production business.

We addressed all of the allegations from these ill-informed campaigns with the truth and facts pro-actively. We have put out on social media platforms the facts for everyone to see.

In continuation of these efforts, we have also hosted the Flame of Truth eBook titled “India Has Never Been Here Before - Facts You Didn’t Know About KG-D6” on our website www.ril.com. The contents were mentioned by Shri. Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries Limited during his speech at the Company’s 40th Annual General Meeting held recently in Mumbai.
