19 March 2016 Current Affairs: Member (Planning) Sudhir Raheja has been given the additional charge of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) Chairman after R K Srivastava’s tenure was curtailed suddenly by the government.This is the second time Raheja has been entrusted with the task of heading the national airport company.In August 2014, Raheja was given the additional charge following the repatriation of the then acting Chairman Alok Sinha to his parent cadre, Uttar Pradesh.Raheja today (Friday) took over the additional charge of the post left vacant by the sudden exit of R K Srivastava,” an AAI source said. Srivastava, a 1984 batch Jharkhand-cadre IAS officer, was removed from the post by the government, nearly 15 months after he was brought at the helm for a five-year term.58-year-old Srivastava had taken charge on January 2, 2015 and his appointment was announced by the government in December 2014.
