Help PM does not deserve to face humiliation: Ratan Tata
New Delhi, Nov 28 (PTI) In the face of uproar against the government over the alleged spectrum allocation scam, Tata group chief Ratan Tata has said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not deserve to face "humiliation".

"I want to say that it has hurt me to see what he (PM) has gone through in the past weeks... in Parliament... the pressure... the innuendos and the pressure he has been going through to resign and so on," Tata said in an interview to NDTV.

Complimenting Congress President Sonia Gandhi for supporting Singh publicly because he did not deserve this kind of pressure in Parliament, Tata said: "And here again I think this is the responsibility of the Parliamentarians to transact, to govern the country and not to adjourn the Parliament everyday..."

The comments assume significance in the backdrop of 2G controversy and the litigation in the Supreme Court during which the Prime Minister was questioned over the delay in taking a decision on a plea to sanction prosecution of then Telecom Minister A Raja, who resigned subsequently.

Tata said that Singh was one person who was truly above any allegation thrown at him. He is a person "whom we are lucky to have because it''s his phase that has been the phase of transforming India and it is this person who has commanded the respect of leaders in major countries."

Talking about the 2G controversy and the leakage of telephonic conversations PR professional and corporate lobbyist Niira Radia had with some politicians, journalists and industrialists, Tata said that what had happened in the last few weeks was an indication of what could happen anytime.

"Then we are really going down the root into a Banana Republic. I would have no hesitation in telling the Prime Minister this, because I don''t believe that the Prime Minister is contributing to this. I think he should be concerned about the nation going in that direction and he is a tremendously good man."

Tata cautioned against projection of India as a scandal- riddled country and said that the nation should not fall into the trap of becoming a nation that is destroying itself by making everything into a scam.
