The statement has also been tweeted by Congress leader Sam Pitroda.
“History records the deeds of the good and the noble, but rarely does it pay attention to the carping of lesser individuals,” it mentions.
“If our IT companies earn, each year, billions of dollars in foreign revenue it is because of the farsighted wisdom of Rajivji. If India is connected as a nation through the advances in the telecom sector it is because of the policies and actions of Rajivji,” the letter further said.
The letter has also been signed by former DUTA President Aditya Narayan Misra, two DU executive council members, three DU academic council members, DUTA vice president, DUTA joint secretary and a member of DU’s finance committee.
