Jamshedpur: Jamshedpur MP Bidyut Baran Mahato met Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu on Wednesday and demanded speedy work on the Dhalbhumgarh airport project. He said the delay in project completion was taking a toll on development of the entire Kolhan region.
Mahato said all the three districts of Kolhan had an abundance of natural resources and they also had thousands of industrial units from small to medium scale. Due to absence of an International airport, the region is suffering from backwardness as investors, businessmen and entrepreneurs are facing transportation difficulties, he said.
Mahato said there was no roadblock in the way of the airport project as the state government and the district administration were ready to cooperate in every possible manner.
The Union Minister directed his Secretary RN Choubey to expedite work on the airport project and ensure a meeting with the Jharkhand Chief Minister and Jamshedpur MP in Ranchi as soon as possible.
