“On an emotional note, Air India, under the leadership of Mr JRD Tata had, at one time, gained the reputation of being one of the most prestigious airlines in the world.
“Tatas will have the opportunity of regaining the image and reputation it enjoyed in earlier years,” he said.
He added that JRD Tata would have been “overjoyed” had he been alive today.
He concluded by thanking the government for its recent policy of opening select industries to the private sector.
