Azim Premji – One bizman who doesn’t mince words

Posted by fairval on January 27, 2011

There are too many of our leading business men who will always be politically correct, almost fawning, when it comes to dealing with the government. But not Azim Premji. He is one person who has often said some very critical things in public.

Even at Davos, he has not been diplomatic when talking about UPA govt.  Here is a reported statement —

Premji says, he is “extremely disappointed” over the failure of the UPA government to tackle key issue such as breakdown in governance. “We will send concrete recommendations to plug gaps in governance.” He says India Inc’s open letter to government was the first step in that direction.  “We have pointed out long-term national issues in open letter.”

“It will be difficult to bring down inflation to 7%,” he says.

The RBI governer claimed on Tuesday that inflation will come down to 7% by March. Clearly, Premji is not buying that.
