Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 5: Janata Dal (United) Parliamentary Board Chairman Sharad Yadav today criticised the government to award contracts to the private parties '' in the name of modernisation of Delhi and Mumbai airports.'' Mr Yadav said in a statement here that the Civil Aviation Ministry has not followed the proper norms which is a violation of the Common Minimum programme of the government.

''The agreement signed on Tuesday made mockery of transparency as it took place at a time when matter is subjudice,'' he said.

He pointed out that during the previous NDA regime eforts were made to modernise Delhi and Mumbai airports by executing work departmentally.

Instead of going for privatisation of these two airpors which generate 65 per cent of the revenue of the Airports Authority of India, the present UPA goernment should have taken a decision to modernise those 122 airports from where only rest 20 per cent of revenue is generated, he sugested.

According to Mr Yadav, after privatisation of Delhi and Mumbai airports, AAI would have no option but to privatise other airports also.
