How long shall commoners suffer at Jammu Airport?

Jammu: For VVIP’s and who’s who of the State Administration it is very easy to gain access inside the airport premises in their private or official vehicles. Be it the case of boarding the flight or receiving their guests, they easily approach security personnel deployed at the airport or civil aviation authorities to register number of their vehicle and enjoy smooth passage inside the tightly guarded premises.
In contrast, the common passengers, first time visitors or pilgrims/tourists arriving here face many hardships on their arrival at Jammu Airport.
For those local residents, who do not have enough contacts in the State Administration or police waiting outside the exit gate or dropping their guests at the door step of airport is the only option made available to them.
There is no other mechanism where these people can walk inside the entry gate of the airport to see off their loved ones. Ironically, the security staff, deployed at the gates does not entertain even genuine passengers or local residents who accompany either senior citizens or first timers to facilitate easy travel.
Even visitors who are on their own too face numerous hardships soon after landing. In the absence of adequate parking facilities, the taxi operators are not allowed to park their vehicles inside the airport premises.
