Microsoft Corp’s Indian born CEO Satya Nadella says that he is saddened by Citizenship Amendment Act, BuzzFeed news reported.
“I think what is happening is sad, primarily as sort of someone who grew up there… I think it’s just bad,” Nadella told BuzzFeed at a Microsoft event in Manhattan.
In a statement issued by Microsoft India, Mr. Nadella said: “Every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly. And in democracies, that is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds.
“I’m shaped by my Indian heritage, growing up in a multicultural India and my immigrant experience in the United States. My hope is for an India where an immigrant can aspire to found a prosperous start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large”.
