DYFI stages sit-in at Air India office

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Tension prevailed at the office of the National Aviation Company India Limited (Air India) at Vellayambalam here on Thursday after a group of DYFI workers staged a protest alleging backdoor recruitment.  The agitators led by DYFI president Sreeramakrishnan staged a sit-in in front of the office and demanded that the backdoor appointment should be stopped.
 They alleged that appointments are being made by Air India to various posts at airport in association with the Singapore Airport Terminal Services without proper notification. Moreover, the recruitments are being conducted after the declaration of Assembly election, the DYFI leaders said.
 They alleged that the Air India officials were collecting huge amounts as bribe from the candidates. A detailed probe should be conducted to find out the role of Civil Aviation Minister Vayalar Ravi in these recruitments, they said.
 The agitators later disbursed following the intervention of the police.
 It is learnt that the recruitments were being conducted to AISATS, the newly-formed joint venture company of Air India and Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) for carrying out ground handling services at various airports. Air India officials, however, were not available for comments.
