Mail News Service

Jamshedpur: Jamshedpur MP Bidyut Baran Mahato raised the issue of Dhalbhumgarh airport in Lok Sabha on Monday. He said the bhumi pujan of the proposed airport was done on 24th January 2019 and the Central government had allotted Rs 100 crore for the construction and development of the airport. He alleged that the cold attitude of the Jharkhand government was delaying the completion of the project. He said the state government was not taking interest in the project which was vital for the development of the region. He said the Dhalbhumgarh airport would be a milestone for Jharkhand, West Bengal and Odisha. He said the airport would boost industrial development in the three states.

“The forest and environment department of Jharkhand government has not yet given no objection certificate to the Airport Authority of India yet and a proposal in this regard has not been sent to the Civil Aviation Ministry by the Jharkhand government,” said Mahato Mahato said he had met Chief Minister Hemant Soren and demanded that the various roadblocks on the path of project’s successful completion be removed. He said he had also given a memorandum to the CM and got assurance from him. But so far nothing positive has occurred, he said while demanding that the Central government talk to the state government in this regard and find a solution.
