The current government has put in a lot of effort in encouraging entrepreneurship and in creating a lot of jobs. However, the growth rate of software companies which were the primary channels for creating jobs for engineers has come down, Narayana Murthy said.
"I have read the statement issued by the Infosys Board of Directors. I am anguished by the allegations, tone and tenor of its statements," said Murthy in an e-mail to the media on Friday, adding it was below his dignity to respond to such insinuations.
Infosys is understood to have interviewed eight internal candidates for the CEO’s post while simultaneously entrusting executive search firm Egon Zehnder with the task of hunting for a suitable successor.
