The Washington, D.C. based US-India Business Council (USIBC) is hosting many of the events for the corporate delegates in India. The USIBC's Board of Directors includes Frank Wisner, former Ambassador to India, currently representing the American International Group Inc (AIG), one of the largest insurance companies in the US. Also on the Council's board is Joseph W. Sutton of Enron, a Houston-based natural gas giant whose power projects in India have come under attack from environmental and community groups. Others on the board include Peter Howell of banking conglomerate Citigroup, Dinesh Keskar of Boeing India, Boyd Montgomery of UNOCAL and Charles Saris of Pfizer pharmaceuticals, to name a few.

The large corporate delegation accompanying Clinton includes former ambassador to India Frank Wisner, Lou Gestner, IBM's Chairman, Arun Netraveli, President of Bell Laboratories/Lucent Technologies, John Smith, CEO of General Motors, Kenneth Lay, Chairman and CEO of Enron and General Electric's CEO John Welch.

Many US corporations have increasingly come under fire from Indian activists, whose concerns range from human rights to the environment. Last year, Enron, the single largest foreign investor in India, was implicated in human rights violations in India by a Human Rights Watch. A lawsuit was recently filed against Union Carbide by victims of one of the worst industrial disasters in history fifteen years ago in Bhopal, India. Warren M. Anderson, chairman of the Union Carbide Corporation during the1984 Bhopal chemical disaster has apparently gone into hiding to avoid a summons to appear in a Manhattan federal court as part of civil proceedings against him and the company.

Ray Childress among Houston Texans minority owners

HOUSTON (AP) — Former Houston Oilers star Ray Childress and the chairmen of two major energy firms are among 10 minority owners of the NFL expansion Houston Texans, the team announced Friday.

Childress, a five-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman, is part of a group of local leaders who bought a combined 30 percent of the team. Texans founder Bob McNair and his family own the rest.

“I am very honored that each of these individuals has decided to invest in the Houston Texans,” McNair said. “They represent a wide range of business and community interests but they all share one common bond — they are winners in their fields.”

Childress, a Dallas-area native who starred at Texas A&M before playing 11 seasons with the Oilers, currently is chairman of Ray Childress Auto Group, for which he remains visible as a television pitchman.

Chuck Watson, chairman and chief executive officer of Dynegy Inc. and owner of the minor-league Houston Aeros hockey team, will serve as a Texans vice chairman, McNair said.

Other minority owners include:

—Kenneth L. Lay, chairman of Enron Corp. and a major proponent of the public funding effort to help build Reliant Stadium for the Texans and Enron Field for the Houston Astros.

—Tilman J. Fertitta, head of Landry's Restaurants Inc. and a former minority stockholder of the Houston Rockets.

—Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, senior pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church, best known nationally for introducing then-Gov. George W. Bush at the Republican National Convention last summer.

—Robert R. Onstead, chairman emeritus of Randalls Food Markets Inc., which include Tom Thumb supermarkets across Texas.

—Charles W. Duncan Jr., former president of Coca-Cola Co. and former U.S. energy secretary.

—Harry Gee Jr., immigration attorney and founder of Harry Gee Jr. and Associates. Gee also was a vocal supporter of stadium funding.

—Joseph W. Sutton, chairman and chief executive officer of Sutton Ventures Group LLC and a former vice chairman of Enron.

—Philip J. Burguieres, chairman and chief executive officer of EMC Holdings LLC and vice chairman of the Texans.

The Texans begin play next year.
