There are many things in the newspaper for us to read. We read a few of them and miss some others. This article is for those of you who have given a miss to the piece of news that talks about Civil Aviation Minister Ajith Sighâ€™s trip to the US. Why does Mr. Singh want to go to the US? Why has he requested the media to accompany him on his trip? You will find answers to these questions in this article. This trip is basically being undertaken by Mr. Singh for the delivery of Air Indiaâ€™s new range of jets Boeing 787.
Recently on Thursday the Media Organization received an e-mail requesting them to accompany them on this trip. It was also assured that the expenses of their stay, travel, and food will be taken care of.
But why this sudden decision? The answer is the direct reaction to the ten-day strike in Air India that caused a loss of an unimaginable 150 crores! This was after Air Indiaâ€™s official figure in the share market dropped down to 17.6 percent. The government is probably hoping that this trip will lift Air India from its miseries. Can one trip really cover up for 150 crores? What is your opinion?
