Lohani is PM’s choice

img-sept15-31Who would be the Chairman & Managing Director of Air India after Rohit Nandan? Everybody thought that someone from the IAS fraternity would get this coveted post but they were proved wrong. There is much resentment among the top-ranking IAS officers about the appointment of Ashwani Lohani to this post. They cannot express themselves aloud as the decision is approved by the PM himself. No one would have thought that an Indian Railways Engineering Service officer would make it to the top post. How did Lohani reach there? Sheer hard work and understanding of the industry? Sources have disclosed that Narendra Modi only wants officers who are result-oriented. South Block sources inform that the PM had asked Nripendra Mishra, Ajit Doval and Cabinet Secretary AK Seth to prepare a dossier of competent officers. When the dossier was submitted to him, nothing seemed to impress Modi. He personally selected Lohani as the new CMD of Air India. Lohani had turned around MP Tourism in a short time. Let us see if he can turn things around for Air India as well.
