It is not surprising that the government is hell-bent on Public-Private Participation (PPP) projects in almost all sectors. But experiences have shown that it is a source of corruption and handing over valuable national assets at cheap rate to big business and MNCs.

Take the new airports in Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad etc. which have been given to private companies. Now they are charging huge rates from travellers for airport charges. The private contractors are charging heavy toll charges for using the public road.

The PPP means utilisng the public assets for private profit. Can we support it?
