Karnataka needs political maturity, not one-upmanship, by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

Karnataka’s business-friendly policies for knowledge-based industries such as information technology (IT) and biotechnology have won it the epithets of “IT capital", “BT capital" and “start-up capital". The leadership assumed by the state is not an accident. It is the result of a strong collaboration between government, industry and academia as well as deep involvement of a committed bureaucracy. This has happened over successive Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Janata Dal (Secular) or JD(S) and Congress governments.
