New Delhi, Apr 21: Almost 650 Kingfisher engineers are on strike from Friday, Apr 20 night as they have not been paid their monthly salaries since several months.
Protesting against non-payment of dues, the engineers began strike since Friday midnight. The news definitely has brought more trouble for Vijay Mallya - no longer the king of good times.
Earlier, the cash-strapped Kingfisher Airlines staff on Apr 2 urged the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team to boycott Indian Premier League (IPL) as the team is owned by Mr Mallya.
However, Mr Mallya had assured his staffs to pay the salaries of Kingfisher pilots and engineers by Apr 9 and 10. While, the junior staff is likely to receive the salary before Easter.
Now it seems that Mr Mallya is facing the consequences as he has failed to fulfill his words which he had promised to the staffs of Kingfisher airlines regarding their salaries.
