Nayanar lobbies for Thiruvananthapuram international airport
Kerala Chief Minister E K Nayanar has asserted that the Marxist-led government in the state accorded top priority to the development of the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport.
Nayanar said the secretary of Union civil aviation minister Anantha Kumar would visit the state to attend to the problems relating to the delay in the project.
He said he had met Kumar during his recent visit to New Delhi and made out the state's case effectively. He had also invited the Union minister to visit Thiruvananthapuram to take stock of the situation arising out of the delay in providing the facilities required for an international airport, he added.
He said the state government had been doing its best to acquire the land required for the development as per the commitment given earlier.
Nayanar reminded those criticising his government for the lack of development of the airport that the subject came under the purview of the Union government.
However, it was the previous Left democratic front government that had taken the initiative for the upgradation of the airport here as an international one. As a result, the V P Singh government had declared the Thiruvananthapuram Airport as an international airport in 1991, he said.
