Don't flip-flop like Kejriwal, Premji tells media

Friday November 02, 2012 09:55:53 PM, IANS

Bangalore: Indian IT czar and Wipro Ltd chairman Azim Premji Friday had a word of advice for the media - don't flip-flop like social activist Arvind Kejriwal of India Against Corruption (IAC).

"I think the media also, like Kejriwal, flips from topic to topic all the time. Media also has a great role to play. It (media) should have consistency in following through whatever it digs up," Premji told reporters here on the margins of a conference on the financial performance of the IT bellwether for the second quarter (July-Sept) of this fiscal (2012-13).

Asserting that the media could contribute a lot towards the reformation of the country, Premji said it should address the issues seriously by remaining focused on them till they were resolved.

"I have been saying consistently that the media should be serious in taking issues to their logical conclusion, and not leave them half-way," Premji said.

Declining to comment on crony capitalism, which the IAC has raised in connection with the alleged favours the government had shown in the natural gas project of the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Ltd, Premji said things were no better and no worse than they have been in the past two years.

Asked if the government image had taken a beating with the recent expose on the Congress president's son-in-law Robert Vadra's land dealings and external affairs minister Salman Khurshid's alleged misappropriation of state funds through his non-government organisation, Premji declined to comment, saying he did not know.

"I don't know if the government's image is taking a beating, but its image is certainly not getting elevated either," Premji quipped.
