Topic: Air India disinvestment
Swadeshi lobbies like Swadeshi Jagran Manch, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh and sections within BJP have already opposed Air India sale over national interests.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has called the Modi government's plan to sell Air India “anti-national”, while Congress leaders said India is on “brink of bankruptcy”.
Modi govt Monday began the process of selling flag carrier Air India, whose accumulated debt stands at Rs 60,000 crore.
Air India will be sold fully but effective control needs to stay with Indian nationals, according to preliminary terms published Monday.
