New Delhi, Jan. 31
AIR services around the country could be affected on Wednesday with the Airports Authority of India Joint Workers Forum deciding to launch an indefinite nationwide strike to protest against the Government decision to award the contract for modernisation of Delhi and Mumbai airports.
Earlier, addressing a press conference, the Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, said that the Government had made alternate plans to ensure that air services function normally.
Official sources said that the personnel of the Indian Air Force have been put on "short notice stand-by" to ensure that the air services functioned normally.Related Stories:
