Mukesh Ambani called them the Young Leaders of Reliance and sought the blessings of the shareholders for them. “They are part of a young team of leaders and professionals who are already doing great things at Reliance. They are all guided on a daily basis by the senior leaders of RIL, including the chairman and the board of directors,” he said.
