Ratan Tata has once again taken on fake news by busting a social media post falsely attributed to him. The Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons took to Instagram to share a snippet of the post and convey that it is fake news. “This is not said by me. Thank you,” he also wrote in his Insta story.

The screenshot of the post shared by Tata reads “Liquor sales should be sold through Aadhar card. Government food subsidies should be stopped for alcohol buyers. Those who have the facility to buy alcohol can definitely buy food. When we give them free food they pay and buy alcohol. Ratan Tata.”

This is, however, not the first time Ratan Tata has taken to social media to clear the air about news falsely attributed to him. Last year, he shared a post dismissing a viral claim about him buying 50% stake in the Mumbai-based pharmaceutical startup Generic Aadhaar.
