October 14: Ajit Singh, Aviation Minister and President of Rashtriya Lok Dal, says the earlier mandate was to turn around Air India instead of privatizing it as there were unlikely to be takers for it, he says. The recovering airline, despite its problems, is more attractive now, he says. Moreover, aviation is too competitive for the government, with the normal course of government decision making being ill-suited for airlines, he adds.
