Politicians ignoring our plight, say former Kingfisher Airlines employees

New Delhi: Former employees of Vijay Mallya's defunct carrier Kingfisher Airlines have expressed pain over politicians "ignoring" their plight amid trading of allegations over Mallya leaving India.
In yet another open letter, this time addressed to the political and intellectual class of the country, the former Kingfisher Airline employees have alleged that Mallya leaving India in the middle of massive loan default probe, exposes the "rotten" system.
"Although it's not common in India to write such letters but we want all of you to know that we are in deep anguish over the rotten system that was exposed while we try to get our dues. It's a matter to bury our head in shame as a country where a sitting MP of Rajya sabha fled the country under the nose of all the agencies," the letter stated.
This is the third time in last one week that the former employees, who remained unpaid for months together before its Chairman Vijay Mallya grounded the airline due to paucity of funds, have shot off an open letter to pull the country's attention towards their issues.
"You people on your own reach the place where you smell political opportunity, no one supported us not even a statement in our favour," the letter said while citing former employees numerous meeting with the then Government Ministers and law makers from both ruling and opposition parties to take up their issues at that time.
