‘We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you on board again soon’: Vistara posts picture with Maj Gen GD Bakshi again

With Air Vistara now posting a new photograph where two senior officials of the airline visited Gen Bakshi, they might have redeemed themselves and lived up to the advice given by Major General Bakshi.

It was on April 21st 2019 that Air Vistara posted a picture on Twitter welcoming decorated war veteran Major General GD Bakshi on board. What followed was shameless bullying and calls for a boycott from the self-proclaimed liberals who talk tall about tolerance. Vistara faced significant backlash after they deleted the picture with a shabby explanation. Now, as an appropriate response to “liberals” and deserved respect to the veteran, Air Vistara has posted a new picture from their Twitter profile with Major General GD Bakshi.

Air Vistara tweeted, “it was an honour meeting you at your home yesterday. Thank you for your gracious understanding, warmth, and hospitality. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you on board again soon!”

After self-proclaimed ‘liberals’ had forced Air Vistara to delete their previous post where they welcome GD Bakshi on board, the airline faced massive backlash on Social Media. Several people asserted that they would never fly with an airline that cowed down to pressure tactics of few entitled Lutyens’ elites and dishonoured a war veteran in this manner.

Following the backlash, Air Vistara posted a shabby explanation where they asserted that once they posted the picture with Major General GD Bakshi on board, they received several abuses and they had deleted the post to ensure that the dignity of all parties would remain intact.

The shoddy explanation did not make things easier for Air Vistara as people alleged that the airline owned by TATAs was trying to appease all parties concerned and hence, was failing at doing the right and ethical thing.

Vistara had then sent two senior executives to Major General GD Bakshi‘s residence to apologise for deleting the tweet which welcomed him on board.

Major General Bakshi wrote a Facebook post with the picture of the senior officials meeting him. He wrote that Air Vistara should have stuck to their guns, but they were frightened enough to delete the tweet. He added that the story ends here with the gesture of the airline of visiting him personally and tendering an apology. But he added that he is not sure about those virulent haters of the Indian Armed forces, who try to masquerade as the Voice of the nation. He commented that such liberals are out of touch with public opinion and pulse in the country. They need to look within and reflect, he concluded.

With Air Vistara now posting a new photograph where two senior officials of the airline visited Gen Bakshi, they might have redeemed themselves and lived up to the advice given by Major General Bakshi. They should have stuck to their guns with their post itself, one can only hope they stick to their guns this time around.
