There comes a time in every Government run business where tough choices can no longer be avoided. Has time come to bury Air India?
Why does a piss poor country like India need a publicly financed airline when there are plenty of private players who are more than capable of filling in?
We spend more on keeping Air India alive than we spend on Rural Infrastructure. Where are our priorities?
We seem to think that Rs. 22 a day is enough for a person to live in rural India. But nobody questions as to why every Indian is expected to take on Rs. 577 of AI’s debt?
Given the succession of scams, it appears that we have developed a high tolerance to our government flushing our tax dollars down the drain. To paraphrase the French: The Maharaja is Dead, Long Live the Maharaja. Shut down Air India.
