Naresh Goyal meets Chidambaram

Jet Airways chief Naresh Goyal on Wednesday met finance minister P Chidambaram in Delhi as a controversy raged over the airline’s Rs 2,058 crore stake sale deal with Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways.

Goyal, who had a short meeting with the minister, did not speak to mediapersons at the North Block headquarters of the finance ministry.

His meeting came in the backdrop of a controversy raked up by some politicians including those from BJP, CPI and Trinamool Congress, who objected to the sale of 24 per cent of Jet’s equity to Etihad at a cost of Rs 2,058 crore, saying it was not in the national interests. Goyal owns 51 per cent stake in Jet.
