CPI Press Release
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on October 9, 2021):
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses its opposition to the sale of Air India as it is against the national interest.
Air India was mismanaged by successive governments but in spite of this the carrier has done stellar services during every emergency either man made or natural as a government carrier. Government has sold all assets at a very low price when the carrier had started making operative profits since 2015-16. This is in tune with government policy of selling national assets for private profit. It is wrong to sell assets created with public funds for private profits.
Air India has efficient work force and it has potential to emerge as one of the best air carriers in the world.
Air India is the pride of the nation. The Modi government should reconsider its disastrous decision.
