In a bid to soothe ruffled feathers and prevent airport employees from striking work, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel on Tuesday said all steps would be taken to avoid a situation of confrontation over modernisation of Delhi and Mumbai airports.

"We are looking into all issues. We are trying to help them come to a situation where we don't have a confrontation," he told reporters in New Delhi.

Replying to questions, Patel said the revenue issue would be looked into only after the financial bids of the private consortia were opened later on Tuesday.
