New Delhi: The Air India strike issue was raised in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday with Gurudas Dasgupta (CPI) demanding that the government take concrete steps to revive the national carrier and stop patronising private players.
“Step by step, Air India is being destroyed. I urge the government to call the pilots and deal with their demands...
Air India is sought to be destroyed. Salaries have not been paid for months,” Mr. Dasgupta said in the House during Zero Hour.
He clarified that he did not want to go into the merits of the demands being made by the striking pilots but wanted the government to take effective steps to save Air India.
