Biocon Chairperson and Managing Director Shaw termed Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee as "maverick politician" stating her vote bank politics is not in sync with economic growth.
"Mamta Didi is a maverick politician who depends on a vote bank of poor people. Her economic agenda is not aligned with strong economic growth," Shaw tweeted.
Supporting the government's decision to relax retail FDI norms, Shaw added: "The fear of FDI retail can be answered by the same fear that was expressed when McDonalds n (sic) other chains were allowed."
Mahindra & Mahindra Chairman Anand Mahindra also asked the government not to give in to the demands of the West Bengal Chief Minister and instead reforms process must be carried forward.
Backing the UPA government on reforms, Mahindra tweeted: "Again, we urge the Govt (sic) to stand its ground. Right-thinking Indians will be less than amused by partisan politics in a fragile economy."
Ficci President R V Kanoria also said it was important for political parties to understand the importance of economic reforms for the growth of the country.
"The country needs reforms, it needs to grow, it has potential, talent and entrepreneurial skills. I will urge those who are not supporting the reforms to think carefully," he said.
Kanoria further said political differences must be set aside in the greater interest of the country.
RECENT TRIO-ISSUES,viz. unprecentended hike in diesel,gas,petrol prices,and FDI in retail market,spiralling rise in commodities prices,needs immediate mitigation.Regrettably most leaders,including prime minister and sonia gandhi are sold out to vested interests group locally and globally .People of India are remembered only at the time of elections.IT IS MAMTA WHO HAS BY HEART 'MAMTA' FOR PEOPLE AND CAN FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL FOR PEOPLE. FDI retail outlet allowing BILLIONAIRE to swell at the cost middle level retailer is indeed an inhuman act My appreciations for her for her daring exposition of inside ongoings in congress.
Mamata has been playing political gimmicks and wants to rule India by forcing the UPA to follow her directive taking advantage of the precarious position of the UPA government. Mamata, mayavati, Lalu prasad Yadav and Mulayam singh Yadav take India a century backward in the name of common man, poor and backward classes. They want backward classes to remain backward so they may get vote for regressive policies. These classes are prown to believe they are their well-wishers. The fact is that the policies adopted by the UPA is progressive and they save all sections of the society by adoting FDI policies in retail and Aviation. I wish BJP supports ManMohan government on this issue and save the fall of government for the wrong reasons. It is true congress is corrupt and some of its policies on caste divisions are detrimental to the society. But Both big parties must learn to live together and put down reginal palegars from dividing country and taking it towards destruction. BJP must not herass the government at this stage and wait for their chance at the right time.
