Surtis to sit on hunger strike for international airport

Surat: Activists crusading for increased air connectivity will gather at the main gate of Surat airport to participate in a one-day hunger strike to demand international airport in the city on October 1.
Surat Airport Action Committee (SAAC) has threatened to launch an indefinite hunger strike if it fails to achieve the desired results after October 1.
A letter in this connection was sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju demanding international operations from Surat airport before assembly elections are announced.
SAAC president Sanjay Ezhawa shared the official documents gathered from central and state governments regarding the development of Surat international airport.
Ezhawa stated the PMO office has accepted Gujarat government's proposal for development of international airports in Surat and Vadodara. However, there was no mention in the documents gathered from the meeting held at Gandhinagar regarding Gujarat's civil aviation sector development in January 2015.
