Government working on providing low-cost air services

Greeting the audience with a customary 'johad', which is a special way of greeting in Jharkhand, Sinha said, "The government is working on providing low-cost air services to people. After Independence, only 70 airports were made in the country but our government has constructed 33 airports in just one year. The NDA government has ushered in a revolution in the country's aviation industry. In phase one, we focused on infrastructure and in the second phase, we will focus on routes and air connectivity."
Comparing the air connectivity of Ranchi and Gorakhpur, Yogi appealed the Hazaribagh MP to provide more facilities to Gorakhpur, "The population of Gorakhpur is much higher than the combined population of Ranchi and Hazaribagh but Ranchi has 20-22 air services while Gorakhpur has only two. Gorakhpur needs more services and more focus of civil aviation ministry."
