She later tweeted that India Inc is “neither anti-national nor anti-government” as a response to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s remarks that spreading one’s own impression “can hurt national interest”.
“Madam we are neither anti national nor anti government. We want you to succeed big time as fastest growing economy n rise to the top of the global league of economies. I am a proud apolitical National n only want the Govt to promote good policies including at State level,” Shaw tweeted.
