Air India’s Chairman and Managing Director is one of the few bureaucrats that receives praise from across the board, especially the private sector.
His determined, no-nonsense, aggressive management style has earned him, both respect and angst.
Anjuli Bhargava is another of those aviation journalists I have the highest respect for. We agree on almost all points of Indian aviation, most especially on how to solve the problems of national carrier Air India.
She has written an excellent analysis on how the Ministry of Civil Aviation is busy undermining Mr. Jadhav. Why?? you may ask is the Ministry torpedoing the leader of the national carrier ??
The answer is simple. In a very long long long long time, there is a Chairman of Air India who is not a puppet of the ministry, nor a yes man, nor a man who will sacrifice the airline for the sake of its political masters — and this is simply unacceptable to the powers that are.
