Rising tensions between the Infosys founders and the company CEO Vishal Sikka, is grabbing all the attention but a careful reading of the situation makes it clear that the man under the most intense pressure, actually, is the company chairman, R Seshasayee.

According to people close to the situation, some of the founders have expressed unhappiness at the R Seshasayee led board for not closely scrutinising some of the company's recent decisions which they claim have been at odds with established practices.

This includes certain appointments, the severance packages of exiting senior staff, and the ballooning remuneration of the CEO. They believe Seshasayee who took over from K V Kamath as non-executive chairman in 2015 hasn't reined in Sikka on certain issues of "governance's and values". your social media marketing partner
