CHANDIGARH: On Thursday, the main worldwide flight took off from the glimmering, redesigned air terminal in Chandigarh, with Punjab's Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal on load up. In Haryana, it was Chief Minister ML Khattar's temper that took off.
As Mr Badal took the inaugural flight to Sharjah after a great opening, the Haryana boss clergyman shot off a letter to his Punjab partner Parkash Singh Badal. Haryana has contributed an equivalent offer of Rs. 200 crore to change the Chandigarh airplane terminal into a worldwide one, Mr Khattar reminded in an emphatic letter.
The BJP rules both states, however in Punjab, it is junior accomplice to Mr Badal's Akali Dal. Mr Khattar said in the letter that he was "profoundly anguished" by the Punjab government's ads initiating the Chandigarh air terminal as "Mohali International Airport".
The name was flashed in mammoth hoardings that bragged that Punjab is the main state with two worldwide airplane terminals; the other one is at Amritsar. The hoardings were set up the distance to the air terminal. Mr Khattar called Punjab's statement accurately wrong. "The last classification of the air terminal was up in the air by the Union Government," he said in the letter.
Punjab and Haryana have been secured a biting line over a name for the new worldwide airplane terminal. Punjab needs it to be named after progressive opportunity contender Shaheed Bhagat Singh, yet the BJP government in Haryana has proposed naming it after Mangal Sein, a gathering pioneer and a previous vice president clergyman of the state.
At the dispatch of the primary universal flight, union Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju said that the inside has not concluded a name yet.
The Airports Authority of India has 51 for every penny value association in the airplane terminal and the two state governments have 24.5 percent each.
