Dinesh Trivedi (Trinamool) speaks in Bengali. He thanks party chief Mamata Banerjee for giving him an opportunity to serve in Rajya Sabha.
Mr. Trivedi, continuing in English, praises Mr. Puri for his Vande Bharat mission. When you compliment Vande Bharat Mission, remember it was Air India, that came to the rescue. There will be no private sector, if Air India was not there. He requests the government not to sell Air India.
Mr. Trivedi, a trained pilot, says Aircraft Act has to be completely revamped as it has become outdated now. The amendment is welcome, but we need an overhaul, he says.
