Swamy does it again, calls Ratan the most corrupt chairman in Tata history
- Swamy says, Ratan Tata invloved in multiple scams.
- Ratan Tata is doing injustice with Cyrus Mistry.
- The government should intervene and set up an SIT.
BJP Rajya Sabha MP, Subramanian Swamy, known for his controversial statements, recently described Ratan Tata as the most corrupt chairman in Tata group's history claiming his involvement in infamous scams including 2G scam, Air Asia scam, Jaguar deal and the Vistara partnership.
While speaking to reporters in Raipur, Swamy said, "The most corrupt person in Tata history is Ratan Tata. He is not even a Tata, as his father was an adopted child,"
About the recent sacking of Cyrus Mistry as the chairman of Tata Group, Swamy stated, "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 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 BJP leader further added.
Swamy said, "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."
Cyrus Mistry was appointed as the chairman of the Tata Group in 2012 and recently he was sacked from the position after which Tata Sons accused Mistry of "unsubstantiated claims and malicious allegations".
Post this controversial sacking Ratan Tata has been appointed as the interim chairman of the group.
On the other hand, Mistry has accused the company of governance failures and unacceptable interference by Ratan Tata in running the affairs of the group.
Earlier also, Subramanian Swamy has made several allegations against Tata Sons pertaining to the group's different companies.
