NEW DELHI: News portal called The Maldives Report (TMR) has published fake report which aimed to tarnish the reputation of billionaire Abhishek Verma and former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed today.
Portal published report called why did ex-president Nasheed meet an Indian Arms Dealer, while claiming that Maldivian public has started questioning why former President Nasheed met Abishek Verma during his recent trip to India.
As per sources, there are no one questioning that why former President Nasheed met Verma during his recent trip to India.
Maldivians are happy that Verma owned Olialia World is generating approximately 5,000 employment opportunities for the people of Maldives while building an international airport in the Maldives.
In 2017, Olialia had signed an memorandum of understanding (MoU) for building an international airport with the Government of Maldives. The airport will be built upon the ‘build, own and transfer’ model, which means that Olialia build and run the airport for 50 years, after which the operations and management would be handed over to the government of Maldives.
According to Verma’s Press Office it is true that billionaire Verma and his wife Anca Verma met former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed on the 14th of February 2019 and discussed a host of issues pertaining to the economic development of Maldives.
As every Country heads do,they meet Indian politicians and businessmen whenever they visit India such as the then US President Barack Obama met Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, Bharti Enterprises Chief Sunil Mittal, Reliance Group Chairman Anil Ambani, Adani Group head Gautam Adani, Mahindra & Mahindra Chairman Anand Mahindra and Sudhir Mehta of Torrent Pharma were among the CEOs who were present in the summit.
