Vedanta Resources’ cynical campaign, to create an impression of “happiness” among communities impacted by its destructive activities, has been widely ridiculed. Now, it turns out that Vedanta’s supremo, Anil Agarwal, has been grooming his own daughter to spread the corporate guff. Meanwhile, India’s Serious Fraud Office has concluded that Vedanta’s subsidiary, Sesa Goa, did not infract rules on the invoicing of its iron ore exports. And, in a further boost to the company’s fortunes, Vedanta’s full take-over of its Hindustan Zinc subsidiary now looks close to fruition.
