CNBC reports that Vijay Mallya, chairman of Kingfisher Airlines told his employees that 'paid media' is responsible for the downfall of his company.
Really? Was paid media also responsible for the spike in his five star airline business we were then so justifiably proud of five years ago when it launched?
There is an immaturity in thinking here, one senses. Perhaps people would respect him more if he came downright and said the company messed up in its business model. And that isn’t rocket science. Besides, any company in a new business can make mistakes. Look at life around us. Don’t see too many owners saying the media was paid to do that.
I find it an affront that Vijay Mallya and his advisors can be so blatant in their accusations without proof. Think we need an apology from him.
