Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra on Friday came in support of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Twitter against accusations that she did not take the step to reduce corporate tax in time. Mahindra, who is currently in US right now, praised Sitharaman for reducing corporate tax and said the country has sent an invitation letter to global investors by taking the step.

He wrote, “Woke up in the US to this news. The best way to start the day. Not only because companies  will pay less tax. But because this isn’t just another policy tweak. @nsitharaman fired a shot that will be heard around the world. India has sent an invitation letter to global investors’’.

Replying to a comment on the finance minister not implementing the measures earlier, Mahindra tweeted: “This is unbelievable. Do you always get things right the first time? Do you never have to retrace your steps? Do you not value and desire the humility in leaders to listen & recalculate their route?”

Mahindra commented on a tweet that read: “Didn’t she had this wisdom three months back when she presented union budget ? Sir, common log ha8n bewakoof nahin...first you create a problem, allow it to go worse, fudge numbers...become a saviour...what a performance !!!!

Another tweet said: “Our lives cannot  be run on trail (sic) and error method sir.”

On which, Mahindra replied: “Really? And you get everything right the first time? (By the way you just got the spelling of ?trial’ wrong!) “.

On Thursday Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had defended her decision to ban e-cigarettes after Biocon chief Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw questioned her authority to issue the ban.

In a tweet, Shaw had wondered why the decision on e-cigarette ban came from Nirmala Sitharaman and not Health Minister Harsh Vardhan. Sitharaman than posted a series of tweets, defending her decision.

Anand Mahindra, who is quite active on social media kept his word and promoted no plastic use campaign by Indian government.

 

 

He shared a picture of the boardroom where new re-fillable bottles could be seen instead of the plastic ones. He wrote, "Our in-house 'Mahindra retail synergies group' has come up with these re-fillable bottles to replace plastic bottles In our meeting rooms entirely.

 

 

Functional but also aesthetic, I think''.It was quite appreciated by the Netizens and was liked by more than 23,000 Twitter users and retweeted more than 2.5k times.
