Why Ambani was desperate to take control of Network 18

Throughout the run-up to the November-December state assembly elections and its aftermath, Ambani had been angered by the attacks made on him by Arvind Kejriwal, leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The party had captured the public imagination and gone on to form a short-lived government in Delhi.
Kejriwal had gone all guns blazing for Ambani—in press conferences, speeches, at rallies and pleas to the Anti-Corruption Branch. He had made several allegations. To begin with, he had named Ambani in accusations about crony capitalism; he then filed a first information report (FIR) against him, along with RIL and some central government ministers and officials over alleged irregularities in the pricing of natural gas from the Krishna-Godavari basin off India’s east coast.
All of Kejriwal’s allegations were being aired live on national television, fuelling further criticism on social media. RIL, a $66 billion energy firm, wanted to react but didn’t know how. Suing newspapers and television channels was one thing—suing Kejriwal quite another. Threatening him with a lawsuit didn’t work. One-off statements from the communications team summarily denying those allegations weren’t good enough either.

New Delhi: Activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal today accused the Prime Minister of selling out the country to allow windfall profits to Mukesh Ambani's Reliance over its contract to develop the country's key natural gas field in the Krishna Godavari (KG) basin. He said the government appears to be leaning towards allowing Reliance to charge more for the gas it supplies, a sanction which violates the contract and would allow the company to benefit by 43,000 crores.
