Anil Vij seeks time from Rajnath for Ambala airport project

Ambala: State Home and Health Minister Anil Vij has sought time from Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for a meeting to seek his intervention in the issue pertaining to land requirement for a domestic airport in Ambala.
Nearly 20 months ago, the civil airport project in Ambala Cantonment was approved by the Central Government under the Udan 3.0 scheme, but the project has been hanging fire ever since, as the land for the project hasn’t been finalised yet. The air force runway is to be used for the airport.
Speaking to The Tribune, Vij said: “We have identified an Army land near the Air Force station in Ambala, and it is suitable for the project. We will either offer the Army equal land against the identified land, or the price of the land. The Air Force only requires to give a passage for the runway. I have written a letter to the Defence Minister in this regard, and have sought a personal meeting so that the issue can be resolved.”
