MP smells controversy in airport expansion

Dharamsala: The expansion of Gaggal airport is getting embroiled in political controversy. After the state government expedited the work for acquisition of land for its expansion a handful of affected farmers have started an agitation against the move.

Some politicians are seeing a conspiracy behind the farmers agitation. BJP MP from Kangra Kishan Kapoor has alleged that a few vested interests, who were against development of the Kangra region, were behind the agitation. Airport at Gaggal is the busiest in the state and has maximum scope for expansion. If the Gaggal airport was expanded it would help in development of the entire state, Krishan Kapoor alleged.

A BJP MLA had recently issued a statement saying that expansion of Gaggal airport was not required.
