Will take up Ludhiana airport issue with AAI: Union minister

Union minister of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) Kalraj Mishra, who reached Chandigarh by air and came to Ludhiana by road, has admitted that the lack of airport in the industrial city was a huge problem and he would take up the matter with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and minister of civil aviation Ashok Gajapathi Raju.

Speaking on the issue, Mishra said, "Important business hub like Ludhiana definitely deserves an airport to improve city's connectivity with the rest of the country as well as the world. I have taken up the issue earlier also with my counterpart, but the government will ensure that all roadblocks in making Ludhiana airport operational are cleared at the earliest."
