Meeting over slow pace of construction work at Bokaro airport

Bokaro: Concerned over the slow pace of expansion work of airport, Bokaro Deputy Commissioner KN Jha held a meeting with the concerned officials on Saturday.

The Airport Authority of India (AAI) officials were also scheduled to attend the meeting but none arrived, informed Hema Prasad SDO Chas.

Unauthorised slum adjacent to Bokaro airport boundary wall has put a halt on the expansion and development work, informed the SDO.

“Residents of the slum surrounding the airport have broken the newly constructed boundary three times earlier and now they have made a big hole in the wall to use the inside area for open defecation,” said a contract a worker engaged in expansion work.

“Following the complaint, we have increased the vigil (24 hours) surrounding the airport,” said SDO.

Admitting that illegal houses have come up in the area which is creating problems for expansion of the airport; all-out efforts are being made to make the areas encroachments free, said Prasad.
