Rubbishing media reports on Tata group chief Ratan Tata’s comments on the 27-storey residence of Reliance Industries Limited’s chairman Mukesh Ambani, a statement issued by the company Sunda at the attempt to sensationalise and replay conversations out of context,” the statement by a company spokesperson said.
“We would also like to clarify on stories in Indian media regarding Mr Ambani’s home. The report is out of context and factually incorrect,” the statement said. The Times Saturday quoted Tata as saying: “It makes me wonder why someone would do that,” in reference to Ambani’s multi-storeyed residence Antilla in south Mumbai. “The person who lives in there should be concerned about what he sees around him and can he make a difference,” the paper quoted Tata as saying.
The report further cited him as saying: “If he is not, then it is sad because India needs people to allocate some of their enormous wealth to finding ways to mitigate the hardship that people have.” “We are doing so little about the disparity. We are allowing it to be there and wishing it away,” the newspaper report added.
The Tata spokesperson said that Ratan Tata’s comments on wealth were in the larger context of the growing disparity in the society and the “comments seem to have been deliberately sensationalised”.
“There have been words, individuals and statements that have not been mentioned by Mr. Tata during the course of the interaction which are being attributed to him. We have already registered our protest with the concerned publication and will continue to pursue measures against the incorrect impressions being sought to be created,” the statement added.
Reliance Industries Limited, however, declined to comment on the issue.
