started complaining against Suresh and Prahalad with Ravi,
the EVP. The complaints included delay in executing orders,
poor quality and customer rejections. Most of the
complaints were fake. Ravi promoted Jaggu to head the
production section and Suresh was shifted to sales.

going in his favour. He divided workers and used them as
pawns. He ignored Prahalad and direct link with Ravi.
Prahalad quit the company. Jaggu was promoted as General
Manager. Things had to end at some point. It happened in
Jaggu’s life too. There were complaints against him. He had
inducted his brother – in – law, Ganesh, as an engineer.

lakh and was suspended. Jaggu tried to defend Ganesh but
failed in his effort. Corruption charges were also leveled

lakh for himself. On the new-year Jaggu was back to his old
position- sales. Suresh was promoted and was asked to head
production. Suresh became boss to Jaggu.
