Reliance Industries Limited said on Friday that a report stating that Mukesh Ambani, the company’s chairman, planned to live in the United Kingdom with his family was “unwarranted and false speculation.”
“The chairman and his family have no intentions to migrate or dwell in London or anyplace else in the world,” Reliance Industries Limited said in a statement.
Unnamed sources informed Mid-Day that Ambani and his family were likely to split their time in the future between London and Mumbai. At Antilia, Ambani lives with his family. The 27-story structure rises over Mumbai’s posh Altamount Road.
According to the publication, the Ambani family plans to make Stoke Park, a 300-acre country club in Buckinghamshire, their principal residence.
The Stoke Park property was purchased by Reliance Industrial Investments and Holdings Limited earlier this year for Rs 592 crore.
The international conglomerate claimed in a statement that it bought the site to turn it into a premium golf and sporting resort.
“This acquisition will strengthen the group’s fast-growing consumer business,” according to the announcement. “At the same time, it will broaden the global footprint of India’s renowned hospitality business.”
According to Congress leader Gaurav Pandhi, the situation under the BJP government was so bad that Asia’s wealthiest man and his family were relocating to London. In a tweet, he wrote, “The hatred fostered by the BJP-RSS, spiteful politics, and misuse of institutions is eating everyone up.”
Following the announcement that Ambani was preparing to relocate to London, social media users slammed him.
The situation in India under the BJP Govt is so bad, that Asia's richest man, Mukesh Ambani and his family are moving to London.
This dividing time between India & London is BS.
The hatred spread by BJP-RSS, vindictive politics & misuse of institutions is eating everyone up!

Even Mukesh Ambani, our leader's leader is now moving to London after buying a 592 crore property. Sad day for all the billionaire bootlickers who think crony capitalists are true patriots. Even sadder day for Modi who can't keep his bestie home after everything he's done for him

Mukesh Ambani slumming it with only 49 bedrooms on a mere 300 acre property in London. Diwali celebrations have lost their lustre for me, seeing him struggling
