Govt, not pilots, responsible for Air India mess: BJP

with 0 Comment


Condemning Air India's decision to reduce wages and performance-related incentives of its pilots and other staff, BJP today demanded withdrawal of pay-cuts and asked the government to explain airline's financial problems.

"BJP demands immediate withdrawal of pay cuts imposed upon pilots and others and bring out a White Paper on the reasons for present financial status of Air India and its accountability," party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

Blaming the UPA government's policies of "omission and commission" as the reason behind the present mess in Air India, Javadekar said, "It is ironical that instead of making Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel accountable for the present state of affairs of Air India, the hapless pilots and workers are made to suffer."

BJP had raised the issues related to Air India's financial problems in the Rajya Sabha in its last session.

The applications were received in response to an advertisement in May for 220 posts in the Defence Research and Development Organisation, the R&D wing of the ministry of defence, a release said here today.

More than 70 per cent of the applicants appeared for the examination conducted on September 6 this month at 139 centres in 31 cities, it said.

For the test held in September last year to induct 500 scientists, only 43,215 had applied.
