Surat: Pressing in for their demand of more accessible air service from Surat and lowering of ticket costs as compared to other nearby cities with less population, Surat Airport Action Committee members sat on a Hunger strike at the Gandhi statue in Chowk area.
Several members of the group joined in supported by people from all across the city. According to the SAAC convenor Sanjay Ezhava: “this has been a long time demand of the people in Surat but no heed was paid to it. To add to the wounds of Surprise, the airfare from Surat has been placed quite high as compared to other nearby cities.We want justice for the fliers from Surat.”
The hunger strike will continue till 6 in the evening. SAAC urges Surat citizens to join in large numbers at the Gandhi statue showcasing their support to the cause.
