Employee appealed PM to stop privatization of NAC

Kathmandu: Employees of the Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) have appealed to the Prime Minister to cancel the government’s initiative to transform NAC into a private company.

Leaders of nine trade unions active within NAC met the Prime Minister on Wednesday and demanded to halt the decision to privatization of the corporation.

They have also demanded immediate dismissal of General Manager Dim Prasad Poudel. The employees’ union has demanded the Prime Minister to stop the increase in the salary of the general manager and to cancel the appointment of a person affiliated with an organization with conflicting business interests in the corporation’s steering committee.

The matter is currently pending in the Supreme Court. However, the employees have been protesting for 33 days.
