Subramanian Swamy now says Ratan Tata corrupt
BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy called Ratan Tata the most corrupt chairman in the history of the Tata group adding he was not a Tata as his father was adopted.
ANI quoted Swamy as saying “The most corrupt person in Tata history is Ratan Tata. He is not even a Tata, as his father was an adopted child,”
“Ratan Tata is doing injustice with Cyrus Mistry. Two months back, the entire board appreciated the work of the Cyrus Mistry and it could be his (Ratan Tata’s) jealousy that prompted the action,” he added,
He was speaking to reporters in Raipur. The involvement of Ratan Tata in scams like 2G,Air Asia, and Jaguar deal was also mentioned by the controversial MP.
“He has taken the step to save himself from getting caught in scam deals, but he will not be spared whenever he is tried in court. The government should intervene and set up an SIT. I have written to the Prime Minister and informed him about the sections involved where Ratan Tata has breached the Indian Penal Code,” Swamy said.
Ratan Tata on Tuesday hit back at Cyrus Mistry who was removed as Tata Group Chairman saying his removal was absolutely necessary.
“The decision to change the leadership of Tata Sons was a well-considered and a serious one for its board members. This difficult decision, made after careful and thoughtful deliberation, is one the board believes was absolutely necessary for the future success of the Tata Group,” Tata who was elected as the interim chairman wrote to employees of the $100 billion Group.
The letter came at a time when the war escalated when Mistry rebutted “insinuations” of mishandling a dispute with Japan’s NTT DoCoMo.
