As the government takes the crucial decision of allowing foreign airlines to buy up to 49% stake in Indian airlines, civil aviation minister Ajit Singh has stolen the limelight for pushing this policy initiative within a few months of taking charge of the ministry.

'UP govts' failure created space for new leadership: Shri Jayant Chaudhary'

'DGCA safety audit from time to time is routine but there are no violations'
New civil aviation minister Ajit Singh says Air India will be saved but must realise it is in a service industry. He also tells Mihir Mishra & Kavita Chowdhury that private carriers should be allowed to ply abroad if there are unused country rights and he would not discriminate on safety rule enforcement between a state airline and a private one. He’s also for more private participation in establishing airports. Edited excerpts:
What are the major issues with the sector and how do you plan to resolve these?
Business growth for airlines will come from Tier-II and Tier-III towns and we need to do a lot of things to facilitate the growth from these areas. We also need to do a lot of route rationalisations and allow airlines to fly to these cities and towns but not at the cost of losing money. I am of the view that private participation should be taken to build these airports. We modernised some on a public-private partnership but that got stalled and we need to continue it. The Airports Authority of India does not have the money to build all the airports.]]>
Used to play the guitar, now I’m a boring man.
Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) general secretary Jayant Chaudhary’s career is a combination of circumstances and choice. The suave US-born and London School of Economics-educated son of party chief Ajit Singh has picked the rough and tumble of Uttar Pradesh politics as his vocation.
The decision has cost the former investment banker his favourite pastime — playing the guitar and singing.
Spirited debates in Parliament and espousing the cause of farmers, like his father and grandfather, former prime minister Chaudhary Charan Singh, are the beats the 33-year-old Lok Sabha MP from Mathura marches to now. Chaudhary, who is married to Punjabi girl Charu Singh and believes “inter-caste marriages can harmonise the society”, speaks to HT on the dynamics in UP and other issues. Extracts:
Is there any seat-sharing trouble with Congress? The alliance is shaping up well. By and large, issues have been sorted out.

Q: What message you want to give to the young people of Uttar Pradesh? Do you think youth is a “vibrant force of change” in democracy & politics of India?
I believe our democracy and society is at the cusp of transformative changes. I believe the educated youth is challenging the traditional structures & hierarchies and in the process emancipating those who were not in the mainstream.
We will sweep western UP in UP elections: Ajit Singh
RLD chief Ajit Singh's induction in the Union Cabinet coincided with the announcement of the schedule for the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.
He has been forced to juggle his time between the Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, which houses the civil aviation ministry, and his residence at 12, Tughlaq Road, where he invariably runs into hordes of ticket-seekers. The 73-year-old sixth term Lok Sabha member from Baghpat, who is also an IIT Kharagpur alumnus, took some time out to speak to ET , spelling out his party's strategy for the coming round of electoral battle. Excerpts:
What, according to you, are the main issues in the polls?
The main issue is how to get rid of Mayawati - her corruption, her behaviour, her disconnect from the people, patronisation extended to criminals. All sections of the society are angry with her because of five years of misgovernance and misrule. Till now, there was no alternative available to the people of UP.]]>
