For the last week members of the Indian Pilots Guild are causing huge losses to the national carrier Air India, by going on strike.
On CNN IBN noted journalist Karan Thapar interviewed the civil aviation minister Mr. Ajit Singh. Mr. Singh was candid, agreeing to the failures of the carrier, even admitting that government had no business running any service business, especially a highly specialised one like an airline.
Despite these candid admissions, Mr. Singh could offer no logical explanation let alone a justification to the continuous plowing of tax payer money in to the struggling airline and the maintaining of the status quo.
This week Bangalore Aviation invites your thoughts on the conundrum that is the government’s management of Air India.
