While Trinamool Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi highlighted the importance of Air India, Congress’ K.C. Venugopal raised the issue of Adani group winning bids of airports.

“When you compliment Vande Bharat Mission, remember it was Air India that came to the rescue. There would be no private sector if Air India was not there. It needs a revamp, don’t sell it,” urged Trivedi in the house.

Venugopal said: “Adani Group has won bids to operate and develop six airports. There is a clear violation of norms in giving airports to a single private entity. The government ignored advice of some of its own ministries and departments. Changes in norms enabled Adani group to win all six bids.”
