Sougata Roy protest at Chennai Airport


Chennai: Trinamool MP Sougata Roy joined the Air India employee’s protest at Chennai airport on Wednesday. More than 500 Air India employees with Employees Union leader Santharaman are staging protest against the center’s decision to privatize Chennai air port.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has filed a draft at the Madras High Court about the procedure. Earlier on 29 January the Court barred the center’s bid for privatization of the airport.

Although the ministry declined a total privatization of the air port as Airports Authority of India (AAI) has already invested 2,200 to 2,800 rupees to modernize the airport.
