Swamy demanded Civil Aviation Minister to disqualify Tata Sons and partner Malaysian firm Air Asia from Air India bidding

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday demanded that Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri disqualify Tata Sons and their partner Malaysian firm Air Asia from Air India bidding citing his ongoing High Court case and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) cases against Air Asia and Tata Trust officials. At present Air Asia’s Malaysian owners Tony Fernandez and Tata Trust’s R Venkatraman and extradited corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar are accused in CBI and ED cases after Swamy approached High Court and Supreme Court on the illegal foreign direct investment approval given by former Finance Minister P Chidambaram[1]. Tata Trusts’ Managing Trustee Venkatraman who is also in the board of Air Asia is questioned by CBI many times and Deepak Talwar was extradited from Dubai and currently languishing in Tihar jail. Air Asia with Tata partnership was allowed to operate in India in the total illegal way by the Congress-led UPA Government in 2013 and Chidambaram was also on the radar of CBI and ED on this dubious deal.

“In the public interest and in the interest of justice, TATA Sons and/ or with any other foreign or domestic airlines in a joint venture or alone should be disqualified from the process of bidding or any other procedure initiated by the government to buy national carrier Air India till final adjudication of my PIL before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court and appellate Court i.e. Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and any/ all investigation pending with ED or CBI or any other authority probing the subject matter,” said Swamy in a 24-page complaint to Civil Aviation Minister with documents of his ongoing cases in High Court and CBI and ED case details. Subramanian Swamy’s 24-page complaint with documents is published below this article.

Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry fell apart from Tata went ahead with deals with Malaysian airline firm Air Asia. Cyrus Mistry’s forensic audit found that in the Tata-Air Asia deal money was even flown to US-designated terrorist Hamid Reza Malakotipur.

“This argument of illegality and reckless disregard for the propriety [in allowing a prima facie criminally suspect party, Ratan Tata headed Tata & Sons, to participate in bids for Air India], is in addition to the submissions I had made, to your knowledge, in the last year’s Parliamentary Consultative Committee Meeting chaired by you.

“The overwhelming majority of the MPs present in that meeting representing several parties in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, had concurred with me then that Air India should not be privatized in the national interest, despite your plea to the Committee MPs that the financial loss of the Air India left you with no other option,” said Swamy.

Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry fell apart from Tata when went ahead with deals with the Malaysian airline firm Air Asia.

Ratan Tata led Tata Group’s entry into the civil aviation sector during Congress lead UPA regime was a total violation. First through Malaysian firm Air Asia and then opening another company Vistara. Entire civil aviation rules were violated by allowing these two companies to operate in civil aviation.

  1. So bad of PM Narendra Modi to give national asset Air India in a platter to Ratan Tata. So sad that Modi have some inferiority complex when dealing with Corporates Tata, Ambanis and Adani kind crooks. Modi must remember that he became Prime Minister on people’s anger against looting of Congress and these Corproate guys are the same bribe givers to Congress. Modi is so insecure person. He should listen to Subramanian Swamy kind sensible persons

    • Very well, Mr. Mody although got majority
      In lower and upper houses has to think
      Allow the company whose case is not yet
      Finalised in Supreme Court should not allowed to bit the deal of Air India is he does he is doing injustice to the public
      Who believes him as a clean person and go
      With the corporates who will function not
      In the interest of public.
