GUWAHATI, Jan 2: Mahesh Saharia, regional president of Indo American Chamber of Commerce (IACC), had the first maiden meeting held at Kolkata recently after he took the onerous responsibility of the president of IACC. He is the only person from the Northeast in the history of 41 years of the Chamber who has reached this position.
In his speech, thanking the gathering Saharia said, “It is a rare privilege indeed to have such an august gathering as we have here today and I would like to thank each one of you for the trouble that you have taken in coming over to this special session of Indo American Chamber of Commerce”.
He thanked Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for attending the meeting.
Lauding Mukherjee he said, “Any statement of the immense contribution made by him to the Indian democracy will be grossly inadequate. Opposition members speak of him as the most efficient minister even. Those who seriously believe in the dharma of opposition to oppose even all good of the ruling, also find no alternative but to concede by describing him as the only efficient minister of the UPA Government”.
