Volswagon, (VW) one of the biggest auto-maker, based in Germany is in real trouble. It has been found that the company has been cheating the government as also the customers by not putting correct emissions arrangement. The US Government has caught them flat. The company has lied to the US government that it had fully complied with the emission norms, but the government found out the cheating.
The Chief Executive Officer, Martin Winterkorn is compelled to resign. More than 1.1crore diesel vehicles will have to be again fitted and tested for emissions.
If world renowned companies like Volkswagen are cheating like this, what about others? The US government had caught them, but if it is in India, what will happen? The government officer who might have exposed the cheating will be transferred or punished. The fate of Yudhvir Malik, CEO, FSSAI, who exposed that Maggi noodles has more than permissible lead and MSG is now transferred from the post along with another officer who assisted him. The Central Government as well as the corporate houses criticised FSSAI for its findings and sudden action which resulted in thousands of crore of rupees to the company. It is not the health of the people that the Modi Government is worried, but the health and profit of the corporates!
