‘It is final, airport to be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh’

Mohali: While Congress men are all set to hold a padyatra from tomorrow in support of their demand for naming the international airport at Mohali after freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh, SAD leader Prem Singh Chandumajra has claimed that a decision in this regard has already been finalised.
“The airport will be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh. The Haryana Chief Minister has already given his nod and the decision has been finalised,” said Chandumajra, MP from the Anandpur Sahib constituency.
He said in all probability, the name of the airport will be Shaheed Bhagat Singh Chandigarh International Airport, Mohali. “Actually, we want to include both Mohali and Chandigarh in the name of the airport,” said Chandumajra.
The Punjab Youth Congress will start a padyatra from Khatkar Kalan to the Mohali airport tomorrow to press for their demand of naming the airport after Shaheed Bhagat Singh. The padyatra will be flagged off by Capt Amarinder Singh.
