Letter from the ministry of petroleum and natural gas that shows how Dow hid the UCC-origin of the product it was trying to sell to Indian Oil Corporation:
Letter from Dow India to PM's principal secretary TKA Nair:
The letters that Dow CEO Andrew Liveris wrote to P. Chidambaram and Kamal Nath in October 2008, complaining about Chemical Ministry "recommending a delay" in Dow's projects and how it contradicts the "earlier discussions, before signing rgw MOU, when Dow India had met with the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, and was advised that the government would welcome this investment" and how "it is critical that the Government of India speaks with one voice on issues of foreign direct investment and sustained domestic economic growth."
Not only that, the letters also look for "tangible evidence of government action in the next 30 days"
