"I can understand the concern in consumers’ minds, thinking of something at the verge of collapse ... but it’s not a case of making a blanket call. It needs a different approach. One needs to look at it in small pockets, instead of one big problem with one solution. And that’s what I think ABALOBI is doing brilliantly. "
