It's unfair to demand Ravi Venkatesan's resignation, says Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
Bengaluru, August 28: Infosys independent director Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw has backed Ravi Venkatesan, saying he was a valuable Infosys board member. Shaw came in support of Ravi Venkatesan amidst attacks by some stakeholders against him.
"It is most unfair for people to demand his resignation. He is indeed a very valuable board member as chairman Nandan Nilekani has rightly said. It's sad that people comment so loosely without any credible facts," she told PTI over phone.
Shaw was responding to a query on remarks made by stakeholders T V Mohandas Pai and V Balakrishnan against Venkatesan and the support extended by present chairman Nandan Nilekani to the co-chair-turned-Independent Director.
In fact, Pai, a former Infosys director, had alleged in a Twitter post that Venkatesan was in power play and needs to be sidelined. However, after taking over as chairman on August 25, Nilekani had said that Ravi was a 'very valued' member of the Infosys board.
