No talks with pilots; will abide by HC order, says Ravi

Refusing to talk to striking Air India pilots, the government said it will wait till the stir is called off and abide by the court's order on the Contempt of Court proceedings initiated by the airline management.

"I have already stated that there will be no talks with the pilots till they are on strike," Civil Aviation Minister Vayalar Ravi told reporters.
The minister also said that government will wait and abide by the court's order in the Contempt of Court proceeding initiated on the plea of the Air India management.
The Delhi High Court heard both the pilots and the management and adjourned the matter till Tuesday.
Demanding pay parity with their colleagues of erstwhile Air India, better working conditions, removal of Air India CMD and CBI inquiry into alleged withdrawal of flights profitable routes, pilots of erstwhile Indian Airlines owing allegiance with the Indian Commercial Pilots' Association (ICPA) are on strike from midnight last Tuesday.
