Exposing the Lies of Petroleum Minister, Mr. Murli Deora, on the price hike of petroleum products.
PERFORM or Perish – that was the threat given by the minister of civil aviation to the employees of National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL), the merged entity of Indian Airlines (IA) and Air India (AI) last month. This threat came in the background of the sudden stoppage of monthly wages of the employees for the month of June on the plea of resource crunch, or more correctly, due to lack of working capital.
During the last one month, the UPA Government has been doling out concession and relief at jet speed to the airlines – more precisely the two private airlines viz Jet Airways and Kingfisher Airlines, who now share 60 per cent of the domestic aviation market. This is in total contrast to the Government’s apathy during the last two years to the relentless price rise and high inflation which has become unbearable for the common people.
