Air India

There are different views about what is to be done to Air India. One view is to privatise Air India. Another view is opposed to privatisation.
Air India is making loss. If Air India can make profit it can continue as national carrier. Otherwise it has to be privatised.
People in power who misuse Air India should be sacked. During IPL 3 two Air India flights were rescheduled to carry IPL players and passengers had to wait for hours. Praful Patel, civil aviation minister, has to go.
Air India officials who have misused their positions should go.
Air India officials who act for the benefit of private airlines should go and be made to pay for the loss they caused.
Free travel on Air India to former employees and their family members beginning from CMDs should go. They were paid for the job.
Some talk of Air India doing social service. It is not a charitable trust to do social service. Air India should not operate routes that are not profitable.
Many Air India employees know about the misuse of the airline by officials. The employees should go public with such instances.
Gag on employees who speak about misuse of power is unjust. It is done not in the interest of airline but to protect officials and minister.
Employees should not go on flash strikes. When strikes are going on passengers should have correct information.
Problems related to merger of Indian Airlines with Air India should be solved. The merger was supposed to save 500 crore rupees per year. That did not happen. Indian Airlines employees are not happy with the merger.
If within a year Air India does not turn profitable it should be privatised.

Is India a banana republic?

India is a nuclear power and a country of more than a billion people.  It has a strong army, navy and air force.  Yet its past and present shows it to be a soft state. 

In 1989 Rubia Sayeed, daughter of the then Home Minister of India Mufti Mohammed Sayeed,   was kidnapped.  Five terrorists were released to secure her release.  Terrorism in Kashmir got a boost. 

Later the country followed an inconsistent policy with regard to kidnappings.  In some cases nobody was released.  When Doraisamy was kidnapped there was release of terrorist(s) to secure his release. 

In 1999 Indian Airlines aerpolane was hijacked.  The aeroplane was in Amritsar at least for 25 minutes.  It was allowed to take off.  It went to Kandahar.  Three terrorists were released.  One of them later attacked Jammu & Kashmir Legislature building which killed 41 people. 

Terrorist acts are frequent in India.  Very few times people who are involved in crimes are caught.  Fewer times they are punished. 

Naxal movement is spreading its wings.  It is a challenge to the nation.  Nothing substantial is done to contain it. 

What is the use of having nuclear weapons if a few terrorists can hold the country to ransom?
