He was speaking in a panel discussion at the India Economic Summit today.

Sunil Mittal in response to Ross, also in the panel said Huawei products have been used in Indian telecom sector over the last many years and they have been effective and efficient.

“They (Huawei) should be in play. Huawei for the last 10 to 12 years have been extremely good with their products to the extent that I can say that we have been using their 3G and 4G products which are significantly superior to Nokia and Ericsson. India must use this leverage,” Mittal said.

Indian government is yet to take a call on allowing Huawei in 5G trials.
