Credit war for new flight, residents ask for teamwork

Amritsar: The starting of a new flight from Amritsar to Nanded Sahib has also triggered a credit war between Congress MP Gurjeet Singh Aujla and BJP MP Shwait Malik. Both the leaders are claiming credit for starting the new flight.

While the office of BJP leader Malik termed it as a gift from PM Narendra Modi for the holy city ahead of the New Year, the Congress leader posted a video to congratulate the city residents for the new flight.

Both the MPs are known for holding meetings with airport officials and for highlighting the cause of better air connectivity.

However, the way in which the BJP leader went a step ahead by criticising the previous UPA government for the wrongdoings which caused loss to Amritsar airport, the city residents feel that the senior leaders should refrain from making local development issues a reason for their political tussle.
