Shareholder pressure stops India Inc from speaking out: Anand Mahindra
The best way a corporate honcho can speak out is through supporting causes he believes in, like liberal education, outspoken industry leader Anand Mahindra said. "Many corporates are attacked, saying `you are too careful, you're not taking risks, you're not being outspoken'. I have a simple answer. It is not about courage. I am paid by my shareholders, they do not pay me to court controversies"
Comments from Anand Mahindra come amid controversies courted by institutes of higher learning, especially those focusing on humanities like JNU and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences among others, over various issues. Image source: PTI
