Thursday, 26 Nov, 10.23 am

The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), Assam has come down heavily on the BJP-led Assam government for its unconditional support to the privatisation drive in the state.

LDP state chairman Holiram Terang said, "Central government under BJP is privatising everything and unfortunately the state dispensation is acting like a puppet."

Recently the Union Cabinet approved privatisation of the terminals and other tourist facilities of three airports-Jaipur, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram. Kerala government has already filed an appeal against privatisation of Thiruvananthapuram Airport in the Kerala High Court.
