Infosys Narayanamurthy blames politicians for current ills

Infosys Mentor N R Narayanamurthy today blamed the current political system for the ills the nation is facing. Delivering the convocation address at the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University here, he lamented that despite tremendous economic gains the country had made and earned respect from the world community ‘we have another India steeped in deep poverty, illetracy, ill-health and malnutrition and without hope and confidence in the future’. “We have created a political system with incentives for most of our politicians to keep our people poor, illiterate and helpless. “We have consistently been among the lowly ranked nations in the Human Development Index.” “Not surprisingly, we rank high on corruption’ he added.
