CPI(M) Dakshina Kannada district Secretary B. Madhava said that According to Indian constitution, the law in the country is equal to all. It does not suggest life of poor people is of less worth and rich people are of more worth, but the Air India has made the discrimination among the people.

The authorities of AI and Central Government have changed the rule of Indian Constitution and insulted it by making discrimination in the compensation disbursing.

It is been read in newspapers that PM Manmohan Singh speaking on various matter in different meeting and events, remaining it unsolved is left to a side, but it is surprising that, he is not uttering a word related to this matter. He criticized PM and said that now it is necessary to examine whether he knows to speak or not.
