Change is in­evitable

TravTalk - India - - GUESTCOLUMN -

The last month saw big re­jigs at ma­jor gov­ern­ment of­fices, es­pe­cially the ones re­lated to tourism. It’s only been a few months since Rashmi Verma joined as the new Tourism Sec­re­tary and now MOT has an­other new face with Tourism Min­is­ter Alphons Kan­nan­thanam tak­ing charge. In fact, the min­istry has also seen the in­clu­sion of a new Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, Satya­jeet Ra­jan. An­other ma­jor change of of­fice hap­pened with Air In­dia CMD, Ash­wani Lo­hani be­com­ing the Chair­man of Rail­way Board, re­plac­ing A. K. Mit­tal who re­port­edly re­signed ow­ing moral re­spon­si­bil­ity of the Puri-Harid­war Utkal Ex­press de­rail­ment in Ut­tar Pradesh. While Lo­hani goes back to Rail­ways, where he has had many achieve­ments to his credit be­fore, join­ing in his place is Ra­jiv Bansal as the CMD of Air In­dia at least for the next three months. This change is cru­cial, es­pe­cially when the gov­ern­ment is look­ing at the dis­in­vest­ment of the na­tional car­rier. How­ever, with new names there are new ex­pec­ta­tions, and we hope that all of them work towards mak­ing In­dia as in­cred­i­ble as we want to see it.
