Former diplomat and independent diplomat Ronen Sen today claimed that he never complimented ousted Chairman Cyrus Mistry’s performance and said such “insinuations” through orchestrated leaks reflected a mindset of “self-centred priorities and perceptions”.
Sen alleged that internal documents were being leaked in a selective and motivated manner by sources close to Mistry. This, Sen said raises questions on, “whether these orchestrated leaks will enhance or further diminish the confidence of his fellow directors on the board of Tata Sons”.
“Insinuations that I acted differently in the board room of an iconic company with a great legacy appears to reflect a mindset that measures others by their own self-centred priorities and perceptions,” Sen said in a letter to Tatas.
“The implied assumption that there were no developments between the meeting of the Nomination & Renumeration Committee and the Board meeting on the 24th October is also naive to put it mildly,” Sen said in the letter.
Sen said he has not and would not comment on the veracity or otherwise of confidential and internal documents being “leaked in a selective and motivated manner by ‘sources close to the former chairman’, contrary to norms governing privileged information”.
