Khed Chakan belt should b e reconcidered for Pune airport project, MP to CM Devendra Fadnavis

IN THe wake of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announcing that Purandar will be the chosen site for Pune’s new airport, Shirur Lok Sabha MP Shivaji Adhalrao Patil has said that he is set to meet Fadnavis next week and ask the government to reconsider Khed Chakan belt for the airport project.
The MP reasoned that the belt would be more feasible for industrialists and the air traffic.
“I agree that the survey has found Purandar land feasible for the airport, but what is the point of having an airport that would not see much air traffic. What about the economical viability as well as feasibility in terms of people using the airport?”questioned the MP.
He said that although there has been a 15-year delay, the sites were finalised in the area and the government had got in over 3,000 crore investment to the Khed belt, giving the upcoming airport as the bait for the deals.
