Absence of decision-making biggest concern: PremjiOctober 31st, 2011 - 11:56 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, Oct 31 (IANS) Absence of decision-making among the leaders in the government is the biggest concern, Wipro chairman Azim Premji said Monday.
“The biggest concern is over the governance issues. There is complete absence of decision-making among the leaders in the government,” Premji told reporters here at a press conference on the IT bellwether’s performance during the second quarter (July-September) of this fiscal (2011-12).
On the response to the second ‘open letter’ by a group of prominent persons, including industrialists to national leaders on governance deficit, Premji said the reaction of the prime minister (Manmohan Singh) was positive in terms of taking it on record.
In the second letter Oct 10 to the leaders, the industrialists, including Premji, Keshub Mahindra and Deepak Parekh, expressed concern over a series of scams.
In the first letter Jan 17, the group brought to the notice of the prime minister and other leaders four major issues - growing governance deficit, galloping corruption, urgent need to distinguish dissent and disruption and environmental challenges.
“You will appreciate how serious is the issue of governance,” Premji quipped.
