State cabinet mulling over airport in central K’taka: Basavaraj Bommai

Haveri/ Kalaburagi: Highlighting the need for improved air connectivity for the people of Haveri, Ballari, Davanagere and Shivamogga districts, Karnataka home minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said that the state cabinet had deliberated on the proposal to build an airport in the region loosely referred to as ‘central Karnataka’.

Bommai, participating in the 65th Karnataka Rajyotsava celebrations at Hosamani Siddapa District Stadium in Haveri, said that improved connectivity, particularly by air, would help attract investment and therefore generate employment in the region. “Improved air connectivity will encourage industries in the IT sector to set up companies here and the youth will get have more employment opportunities as a result,” said Bommai, also the Haveri district in-charge minister.

The outbreak of Covid-19 had upset the government’s calendar of events, owing to which a decision was yet to be taken on the date for the 86th Akhila Kannada Sahitya Sammelana, scheduled to be hosted by Haveri. “We will finalise the date for the literature fest in two months,” he said.
