Huawei is known for creating controversies around the world. They first stole CISCOs IP and later agreed to co-operate under pressure. In India they are part of bigger controversy. In 2001, they were suspected by the Government of India for spying; their close ties with Chinese Military and our neighbor Pakistan had put the company under Indian intelligence radar before clearing their proposals for expansion. Now they joined hands with Himachal Futurustic Comunications Ltd, which has equally bad reputation in India for rigging telecom licenses during Narsimha Rao’s period and looting investors like Kerry Packer during the 2000 boom. Huawei & HFCL failed to supply BSNL’s CDMA equipment order and thus got themselves automatically disqualified for BSNL’s larger upcoming tender of 60 million GSM lines. Hope Dayanidhi Maran is listening.
