Moody analytics report seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rein in on BJP leaders was published recently and was dismissed by the Prime Minister's Office as "the personal opinion of a Junior Associate Economist."
However, Moody's Analytics has clarified that the report is a part of its economic outlook series and was not based on the personal opinion of its analyst.
"The report was published by and is the view of Moody's Analytics as part of its economic outlook series. The report included a section observing political developments in the context of their potential economic impact, and did not advocate any political agenda or perspective," a spokesperson from Moody's Analytics told The Hindu.
The PMO office had stated that the opinion of a Junior Associate Economist employed with Moody's Analytics had been splashed all over implying it as the opinion of Moody's Analytics.
