Kochi The Kerala Pravasi Sangam plans statewide protests against airline companies for canceling flights pertaining to Gulf and sharp increase in air fares. Kerala Pravasi Sangam State President Ghafoor P Lils and General Secretary KV Abdul Khader announced they will take out march and dharna to Central government institutions at all district headquarters on March 29 and 3.
The airline companies exhibit huge discrimination against Gulf passengers from Kerala. Being Ramadan time, expatriates in large numbers fly homeward. Rs 15000 or more has been raised per ticket. There should rise strong protest against such extortion of expats, said Gafoor Lils and Abdul Khader in a statement, adding that Air India canceled Gulf services without no specific reason.
