Tata denies using strong words against PM

New Delhi: Tata Sons on Saturday issued a clarification denying that group Chairman Ratan Tata had used words such as 'venal' business environment or accused the government of 'inaction' in media interviews.

"Tata Sons clarifies that in Ratan N Tata's interview with (a leading British financial) daily, he spoke about coherence in implementation of government policy rather than "lashes into the PM", "rapping India", "warning government of inaction" or "venal business environment", as has been reported in the daily and other media," said a statement from Tata Sons.

"These are terms used by the publications and not not by Tata in any manner," it said.

"Tata Sons is surprised that reputed media entities have sensationalised the observations, without taking into cognisance the tone, tenor and context of the interview," the statement said.
