Prannoy Roy writes to PM

IN Media Watch Briefs | 13/02/2018

NDTV.com  has put out  a letter written by Prannoy Roy to PM Modi arguing that BJP MP Subramanian Swamy’s  accusations of  US corporations doing money laundering and indulging in "sham transactions" with NDTV, are damaging India's chances of getting FDI, because they have shocked industry leaders around the world. The letter says Swamy has ensured that "the finest US corporations" - GE and NBC - are being accused of offences by India's Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax department which,  under US law,  would invite imprisonment  for the heads of these corporations.
