Panchjanya Patrika had termed the tech company Infosys as a traitor.
Infosys was told anti-national, this is not right said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman
In a recent article, Panchjanya Patrika had termed the tech company Infosys as a traitor. After this article was published in Panchjanya, many people were criticizing the RSS. In fact, Panchjanya is said to be associated with the RSS. Panchajanya is also called the mouthpiece of the Sangh. However, after this article, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh distanced itself from Panchjanya. Now Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has given her response to this article published in Panchjanya.
The country's Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the article published in Panchjanya, in which Infosys was called anti-national, was not correct. Finance Minister Sitharaman said in an interview, "It was not right. Such comments were not needed. I think even those people have distanced themselves from whoever wrote this by making statements. The kind of reaction was not right at all."
The finance minister said the government was working with Infosys to resolve the issue. "I had called him twice and had drawn the attention of Nandan Nilekani, co-founder of Infosys," the finance minister said. We and all of them are doing this together. Apart from this, the help of the Institute of Chartered Accountants is also being taken. We have also roped in some tax experts. We are hopeful that Infosys will fix this.
Last month, Sitharaman had issued summons to Infosys CEO Salil Parekh and expressed deep displeasure over the flaws in the tax portal. He also asked Infosys to fix this portal by September 15. A summon was also issued to the CEO after the portal remained closed for two consecutive days. After this, a 4-page cover story in Panchjanya said that anti-national forces want to harm India's economy.
In the September 5 edition of Panchjanya, Infosys has a four-page cover story titled 'Credence and Trauma', with a picture of its founder Narayana Murthy on the cover page. The article targeted the Bengaluru-based company and termed it as a 'high shop, pale dish'. It has also been alleged that Infosys has links with anti-national forces and as a result, the government's income tax portal has been rigged.
