He was throwing tantrums even in beginning of Shri Parrikar's time iirc it was regarding Berretta rifle selected for army... then he was quietly moved to other ministry...
Aviation Industry has been biggest missed opportunity of last administration. Jayant Sinha should take fair share of blame.
Emphasis on aviation started coming 2nd-3rd year onwards when Modiji understood the value and his speeches show it.
Against touting 100 functional airports it should be something like 500-1000 functional airports for country of India's size.
Every major city should have at least two airports. Our airports are already hitting peak capacity!
Such large fleets, and no proper MRO facilities!
Air India international ops should have been given emphasis right from start. Rather it has happened organically and now almost every AI flight to EU, US, let alone Middle East is jam packed.
Lesser said about DGCA the better. While the whole world was grounding 737 Maxs DGCA was acting as sales agent of Boeing; while PW powered A320NEOs have seen so many incidents, DGCA continues to dither on what to do and goes by what PW says; latest gem: Indigo flights have reduced toilets from 3 to 2 to increase seats causing 'Potty' jams and DGCA cares two hoots!
List is endless. Hopefully this administration shall have learnt and recognize immense job creation potential of Aviation!
