Bengaluru: Congress president meet HAL employees
Bengaluru: Congress President Rahul Gandhi would interact with some working and retired employees of the state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) here on Saturday in the context of the defence behemoth not getting offset contract from the Rafale fighter deal, a party official said on Friday
“Rahul will meet and interact with about 100 working and retired employees of HAL at Minsk Square facing its corporate office in the city centre on Saturday evening to ascertain their views and concerns on the company not getting the Rafale contract,” party`s state unit spokesman Ravi Gowda told.
“As the employment rules and service conditions do not apply to the retired personnel, we have no say in their meeting with Gandhi. Regarding working employees, some of them may meet him as union members of the HAL Employees Association,” an official said
