challenge the errant union leaders, who are misleading people to believe otherwise, to submit an iota of information to the contrary, instead of perpetuating vague subjective allegations.

How will you ensure that workers buy into your vision of becoming a world-class company and be part of the vision of making Bajaj Auto a world-class motorcycle company? Is it possible to achieve that if peaceful industrial relations remain elusive?

The vast majority already has, which is why Chakan brands like Pulsar, Avenger & KTM are so successful across the world. The few who for their personal ulterior motives are seeking to jeopardise this will be dealt with decisively this time.

I welcome these academics to step into the real world and practise the wisdom that they preach from the comfort of their armchair. Managing a plant is a contact sport that needs courage, not commentary.
