The Indian snacks king, Manohar blamed government officials for stealing the public's money and using it for their own goods. He also stated that corrupt officials extort money from honest businessmen.
He said, “Big officials, ministers, and politicians who defalcate are the real thieves, not the one who provides employment opportunities to many people.”
“I just want to ask one question; I have paid millions of income tax. In case my company faces any downfall, will the government provide any help to me”, he added.
Manohar Lal said that there is no such policy or system designed to help businessmen who have contributed to the development of the nation by paying taxes.
“The government is not willing to help businessmen by providing sources or any aid. The government has to understand that only business can help a nation grow fully. And to improve business status in India, the government needs to provide financial and social security to business owners” he stated.
