Bhagwat said, “One should view Air India's losses in contrast to the assets it has."
The government is looking to sell 76 percent of the loss-making airline and 100 percent of Air India Express, the budget offshoot that flies on foreign routes to the same buyer.
After potential bidders showed lack of interest in the sale, government said that it will not change the conditions that it has set to privatise the Air India.
Speaking on economic policies, he said, "We will have to rethink our economic policies depending on Indian mode as common man had to face the brunt of poor policies made by the economists."
Bhagwat said that nowhere has anyone in the world managed to meet their ends in available means.
"To become something tomorrow we will have to perform today" he said.
Talking on MSME segment, Bhagwat said, "We will always be driven by MSME segment and we should focus on improving the quality of the products manufactured."
“One should not become a slave to any theory," he added.
