Re: Captains of industry and the national interest

Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!

Dr.Roy was right. The reports submitted by those so-called doyens of the 
Indian Industry is filled with rhetoric and lack substance. Only the prime 
minister knows if he really believes in those industrialists  or if he is 
trying to be a no-nonsense guy by roping in these folks. It only smacks of 
buccaneer capitalism. Rahul Bajaj never innovated and continued to produce 
those smoke-belching autos, the most polluting vehicles. And it is these 
guys ( family-run business walla's )who want to dictate the terms. What a 
pity ?
