The Gujarat government seems to have given Anil Ambani a miss for the upcoming edition of Vibrant Gujarat summit amid the Rafale controversy. Ambani, who has been among the most avid supporters of the biennial investors' summit since it began in 2003, has reportedly been omitted from the list of invitees for this year.

Anil Ambani has been targeted by the opposition parties in the ongoing Rafale deal row, which might be the reason why he has not been extended an invitation for the Vibrant Gujarat summit. The government has avoided all industry leaders who could draw even the slightest negative perception, Manoj Das, principal secretary to Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani told The Times of India.
