Govt to hold talks with AAI employees: Praful Patel

Mumbai: Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel on Saturday said he would hold fresh negotiations with Airports Authority of India employees, who have threatened to go on strike later this month against privatisation of metro airports.
"We will hold fresh negotiations with AAI employees, perhaps during the next week," he told reporters here.
The Airports Authority of India employees' joint forum had announced a 36-hour strike from August 17 alleging that the government went ahead with the privatisation process without consulting them.
On Wednesday, Mumbai and New Delhi international airports were completely handed over to GMR and GVK consortia, which bagged the contract for the projects.
Within hours, AAI employees announced a nationwide 'satyagraha', which will begin at 7 am on August 17 and end at 7 pm the next day.
