Jet Airways, one of the leading company of civil aviation in India, is struggling for its existence. Jet Airways had fired over 1100 employees, after the economic disaster in the world. After this shocking news the employees started protest against this harsh decision of the Jet Airways Management.

In a couple of days from the protest of the employees of Jet Airways, Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal officially announced the re-hiring of the retrenched employees. He said the decision is solely mine, I have neither asked my management nor my wife, about this whole issue. “I have not been able to sleep all night. I apologize for what has happened“, he added.

He appealed the employees to get back to work from today morning. “I was shaken after I saw all the grief around, I cannot see tears. I have faith and am answerable to God and my mother who is no more“, he said emotionally. While asked about the political pressures(that by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray‚Äôs threat), he again re-assured that he has not been pressurized by anybody.

But will this drama really maintain the work-flow with the employees, will they be able to work again with the same motivation ? Lets hope for the goodies !!
