Collector seeks to allay fears over airport project

In the backdrop of reports of a possible shifting of the airport project, the district administration has allayed the fears stating that there have been no hurdles for the implementation of Dagadarthi airport project near Kavali town in Nellore district. District Collector R. Mutyala Raju said there were no plans to shift the entire airport project from Dagadarthi regardless of the fact that demands came up for location of the same nearer to the Krishnapatnam industrial area considering the potential for cargo traffic.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, Mr. Raju said that all the procedures with regard to the Dagadarthi project were being taken forward and there was no scope for any apprehensions. The airport would be advantageous for the people from Nellore and Prakasam districts and to some extent for the people in the border areas, he added.

Referring to the prestigious project of declaring the Nellore district 100% open defecation free (ODF), Mr. Mutyala Raju said that works were going on at a faster pace and all care was being taken to ensure that the intended results would be fully achieved under the ‘Atmagauravam’ programme.
