Mr.Ratan Tata, one of the distinguished leaders of our industry said that the leadership deficit in India is aggravating our present economic crisis, said in an interview to the electronic media.
He said that the vested interests in the government’s policy have either delayed or manipulated that policy often in private sector.
Mr.Ratan Tata said that the country needed leaders who lead from the front and the Prime Minister’s team and the political class needed to pull in one direction, and not pursue individual agendas above national interests.
“There are leaders whom I’ve respected all through my life for their public life. But something has happened that has diffused this leadership. We don’t have leadership that we have been talking about, that is leading from the front,” Tata said.
Meanwhile, he said that Manmohan Singh has held country’s esteem high but at recent times we have lost that esteem. “We have lost the confidence of the world. We have been slow to recognize that in the government,” he added.
