True. That’s assfuckingly true!

Aggrieved Employees of Jet Airways

Aggrieved Employees of Jet Airways

Jet Airways retrenched more than 1000 of its employees and Raj Thakre wanted to take direct action and the owner of Jet Airways responded quickly.

Union Minister of Civil Aviation Praful Patel and local MP Murali Deora also made some grumpy sounds but he’s not going to be mollified or redressed for Mr. Goyal knows who’s more powerful.

The writing on the wall:

Mr. Goyal put mouth where his money is but the message is clear. One man can set rules for anything and the state of India is sullied. However Mr. Goyal said that laying-off probation staff is a universal phenomenon and he is true. 

One up for Thakres and one down for India.

This is demonstrated how anarchy thrives in India than the Rule of Law.

Point is that the employees shall approach the relevant ministry but they know they are powerless. So they approached a man who could produce instant results. He did indeed.

I have to grudgingly accept Thankre’s superiority over Indian State.

Mumbai, October 16: : Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal on Thursday discussed the issue of staff lay-off with MNS chief Raj Thackeray and assured him that he will look into their demands.
“In a telephonic conversation with Thackeray, Goyal assured him of looking into our demands,” an MNS leader said.

Goyal will also be meeting the MNS chief shortly, he said.

Earlier, an MNS delegation met Jet airway officials on Thursday morning at the airline headquarters in Andheri and demanded reinstatement of all the retrenched employees.

All the 1,900 employees sacked by Jet Airways over the last 48 hours will get their jobs back, Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal announced in a dramatic, late-night press conference on Thursday night.

It’s a good decision… (but) I cannot write a cheque for any airline. There is no such thing as a bailout package, please. — Civil Aviation MInister Praful Patel“I want to see smiles on your faces,” he said, after driving in to the Jet corporate office from the airport. “My management took this decision on the basis of certain economic condtions…As the head of the family, my conscience does not allow me to look at just economics.”

“I want to see my family happy,” said Goyal, 48 hours after scenes of weeping, protesting Jet employees played out on television screens across India.

I apologise for all the agony that you must have gone through since yesterday … I request all of you to start work from tomorrow – Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal.Goyal, who was accompanied by his wife, looked tired, and his voice was laden with emotion on a day when politicians from the ruling alliance expressed their nervousness over the biggest job losses ever in India’s struggling aviation sector. “I am under no political pressure, I have met no politician of any political party,” said Goyal, who explained he had been abroad for the last two days and returned to watch scenes of his employees wandering the streets of Mumbai and Delhi.

POST-REINSTATEMENT

Now Praful Patel tells that his initiative compelled Goyal to take back the staff but in the biginning this is what he said: We are helpless!

Now the same Praful Patel : ‘We did it’ (He’s obviously fooling himself)

BUT, the employees of Jet Airways didn’t thank Praful Patel or his ministry but Raj Thakre. It’s weird that Mr. Patel claims credit for it. Poor chap!

New Delhi: Union Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel has said that he called up Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal on Thursday and told him to find a resolution to the lay-off issue.

 

“I called the Chairman of Jet Airways Naresh Goyal yesterday morning to meet me in Hyderabad. After meeting me yesterday morning he had assured me and I had also told him that in 24 hours we must find a resolution to this problem, otherwise we in the ministry would certainly not be very happy with the approach of Jet Airways. I am sure wisdom prevailed and he has taken the right decision,” Parful Patel said.
