Chairman of Indian Airlines Resigns Over Strike: The chairman of state-owned Indian Airlines said he resigned because of what he said was lack of government support in resolving a strike by pilots over the weekend. Chairman and Managing Director S. S. Ramdas said he quit “because of a feeling of being let down.” There was a “total lack of support from the government over the strike issue,” he said. “I was left out on a limb and had no alternative.” A spokesman for the giant domestic carrier said the government had accepted Ramdas’ resignation, which was submitted on Tuesday. Most of the airline’s pilots went on strike Saturday to protest the transfer of eight colleagues to Calcutta, an unpopular base.
