Hundreds of employees of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) at the LGBI Airport in Guwahati staged protest on Saturday against the Centre’s move to privatise six profit-making airports including the LGBI airport.

The AAI employees under the banner of Joint Forum of Unions and Associations of AAI staged protest by shouting slogans and showing flags outside the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) airport on Friday.

The agitators termed the decision to hand over the six profit-making airports —Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Trivandrum, Lucknow, Mangalore and Guwahati airport – to the M/S Adani Group as unilateral and arbitrary.

“The hasty decision to privatise the airports have raised many questions as the stakeholders were not taken into confidence and noting was decided on future of these employees,” said Pradip Das, secretary of the organization here.
