Adani Group has increased the charges at Lucknow airport, the capital of UP, up to 10 times. With this, the Adani Group has started preparing to increase the charge on the airports of all the other countries coming under its jurisdiction.
It is to be known that in the year 2019, the Adani Group had won the tender to operate 06 airports in the country, that too for 50 years. Adani Group reserves the right to operate and manage these airports for 50 years.
The Adani Group has contracts for the operation and management of airports like Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Mangalore and Thiruvananthapuram apart from Lucknow.
The Adani Group has increased the turnaround charge by 10 times for private jets and international flights at Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport in Lucknow. Jet companies are unhappy with the Adani Group’s decision.
Companies say that this decision of the Adani Group is not correct as there has been no increase in any type of facilities at the airports, then for what the turnaround charge has been increased up to 10 times.
A jet operator said on condition of anonymity that most of the business flights arriving at Lucknow airport are for medical evacuation, ie air ambulances, so such a huge increase is not justified from anywhere.
Those who support privatization will be deeply disappointed by this news as the Adani Group has started showing its business gimmicks as soon as airport operations are in hand.
People already knew about this. The opposition continued to alert the government on this issue, but the government’s special kindness towards the Adani Group, a policy of public private partnership, was implemented for airport operations and management.
Experts say that this is just the beginning. Watch the fire ahead, how Adani extorts people’s pockets.
Senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan tweeted on this matter and wrote that “When Modi government gave control of 06 airports to Adani in violation of rules, then he started increasing the airport charges up to 10 times.
Describing Adani as PM Modi’s accomplice, Prashant Bhushan said that this is a highway dacoity by Modi’s accomplice.
