The prime air carrier of Government of India, Air India, is on the brink of being privatised. The government has already started preparations for the same. The highly profitable Air India was made loss making due to the wrong policies and actions of the government including the controversial Air India- Indian Airlines Merger, purchase of 111 planes, while only 35 were operationally required etc. etc. Large mount of unpaid airfare charges by the Ministers, government officers etc. is another reason. And now the move is to privatise it.
It is reported that all the unions of employees in Air India are meeting to discuss about how to stall the process of privatisation. Well and good. Let us hope that strong protest and struggle will be planned and organised against the anti-PSU policy of the Modi Government.
Our solidarity and support to the struggle of the Air India workers.
