Threaten to disrupt IPL matches that the liquor baron's team RCB plays New Delhi (PTI): Frustrated over not getting salary for last 10 months, Kingfisher Airlines employees on Wednesday asked the government to prosecute promoter Vijay Mallya and threatened to disrupt IPL matches. "If Gopal Kanda, promoter of MDLR airlines, can be prosecuted for suicide of an employee why can't the government prosecute Vijay Mallya for suicide of the family member of his employees," said Santosh Gautam, President of Kingfisher Airlines Maintenance Association. They also threatened to disrupt IPL matches of the Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB), the team owned by Mallya. "Last time, when Formula 1 race was being organised here, afraid of our protests, KFA management paid our salary of one month and assured to pay the dues in instalments but they have failed to keep their promises. This time, we will protest outside the venue wherever RCB team plays their matches," said S C Mishra, another employee. The protesting employees have urged RCB players to boycott Mallya's team. They have also asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) not to allow RCB to participate in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). Revival planA sent to DGCA New Delhi (Agencies): Kingfisher Airlines has submitted a revival plan to DGCA, Chairman Vijay Mallya said on Wednesday. He said that the proposal includes payment of overdue salaries. However, he declined to give a timeframe for getting Kingfisher back in the air.
