It will not come as a surprise if business schools soon have case studies of the Sterlite Copper issue as an example of bad governance. More than the company, it is the various state governments that have been in power that are to blame for the mess in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu.Ironically, the political parties that are protesting against the plant have at some point or the other, been responsible for clearing the path for the plant.Now, succumbing to the pressure of the so-called ‘peaceful’ protesters, the state government has asked Sterlite to shut down its unit.
