When Akhilesh Yadav was rejected by Maruti as a dealership applicant

Yadav may have displayed uncommon political ability by vanquishing his father and uncles

Business Standard 

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister may have displayed uncommon political ability by vanquishing his father and uncles in a battle for control of the Samajwadi Party, but about two decades ago, he was rejected by Maruti, India’s largest car-maker, as an applicant for a dealership. 

His father, then the country’s defence minister, had made the approach, having decided his son, fresh from Australia, with a degree in environmental engineering, was unfit for politics. After meeting Yadav fils, however, a senior official concluded that his knowledge of the automobile industry was too sparse to warrant a dealership. Plus, he added, the number of hangers-on around Yadav convinced him that the young man was headed for a successful political career.
