The petition, started on Wednesday, had nearly 50,000 signatories by 8.00 pm on Thursday. “We have been anxious since the day Jet started cancelling flights. Many of the employees who could lose their jobs are sole earning members of their families. Their future is at stake,” Sanjana Singh told TOI.
In her petition, the Class XII student wrote, “The lender’s revival plan was the only ray of hope for us. But all these hopes now seem shattered. Our livelihood was completely dependent on Jet Airways.”
The teenager, while admitting that she did not expect such massive support from common people, added that the petition has raised her hopes of a “solution”.
“My father has been associated with Jet Airways for more than 20 years. But at this stage, loss of his job will be a huge setback to our family. We would need to compromise with our dreams and aspirations. Even pursuing my education would become quite difficult. We are also citizens of India. Seeking help from the Prime Minister is our right,” the petition reads.
