Kapoor told CNBC-TV18, "From a longer term perspective Bharti Airtel and Idea still look good. They have outperformed the rest of the market even after the correction. You had few negative news on the regulatory side for example there is 8% revenue sharing instead of 6% then a lot of other things regarding spectrum. So there is a bit of uncertainty out there as far as the sector is concerned in the short-term, but I think these are still good defensive bets on every decline."
