New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today moved the Election Commission urging it to put on hold the issuance of Air Operator's Permit (AOP) by aviation regulator DGCA to AirAsia India till the next government takes over at the Centre.
Swamy alleged that the grant of the flying licence was a “violation” and that it had been done disregarding his complaint to the Election Commission.
After a nine-month-long wait, new airlines AirAsia India was yesterday granted AOP or flying licence by the DGCA. The airline has promised to offer low and competitive airfares.
In his memorandum to Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath, Swamy sought injunction against the implementation of the AOP to the new airline and communicate it to the Civil Aviations Ministry.
