From D.N.I.S. News Network, India:
Gupta said that while it is important to review the existing Civil Aviation Requirements (C.A.R.) on carriage of persons with disabilities, the Ministry should take at least some steps, even if they are small, to implement the existing C.A.R. to stop harassment at the ground level. The Ministry seems to be buying time and pacifying the sector's anger with the Committee without any definite commitment to stop such gross violations, she said in her letter.
The last straw, according to Gupta was the violation at the hands of Indigo, which happens to be a member of this Committee. "If being part of the Committee is so meaningless then why have it in the first place," she stated.
"There are countless unreported cases that happen on a daily basis. Today each time I want to travel by air, I am actually scared of what treatment I may receive even though I am a member of this 'distinguished Committee'. It is unethical for me to sit on a Committee while no change is happening on the ground," Gupta added.
