“We have received the mandatory clearances for going on a hunger strike. Eight members of our union will sit on fast from Sunday at Jantar Mantar here,” said Rohit Kapahi, committee member of Indian Pilots’ Guild (IPG).

“We along with our families will be there to support our colleagues. We want this strike to end as soon as possible, but we will not come back to work till our 101 sacked colleagues are reinstated,” he said.
