The Congress today latched on to the remarks made by business leader Ratan Tata, who had expressed concerns over “intolerance” in the country, with party leaders saying that doyens of India Inc were realising the source of this curse.

“Intolerance stymies civilizational advance. Doyens of India Inc finally realize the source of ‘curse of intolerance’,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted in a veiled attack on the Modi Government.

In another tweet, senior party leader Digvijay Singh also referred to Tata’s remarks and endorsed them.

“Spot on Mr Ratan Tata. Well spoken,” Singh said in a tweet.

Yesterday, Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons, Ratan Tata, expressed concern over the alleged growing intolerance in the country, dubbing it “a curse we are seeing of late”.

“I think everybody knows where the intolerance is coming from, what it is. Like many thousands, millions of Indians, one wants to see a country without intolerance,” Tata told reporters late last night in Gwalior.

Minutes before, he had spoken against the alleged growing intolerance in his address at the 119th foundation day function of Scindia School here, endorsing Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia’s views on the issue.

“The Maharaja (Jyotiraditya) talked about intolerance. It is a curse we are seeing of late,” the eminent industrialist had said in his address.

“We want to live in an environment where we love our fellow men. We don’t shoot them, we don’t kill them. We don’t hold them hostages but give a bit of ourselves and we give and take,” Tata added.
