Jayant blames Jharkhand govt for H’bag airport delay

Hazaribag: Hazaribag MP and former Union minister of state Jayant Sinha on Monday criticised the Hemant Soren-led government for failing to acquire land for the proposed airport in Hazaribag. Talking to reporters at a press conference here, he said, “The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has already provided Rs 195 crore to the state government for the land acquisition, yet the process has not been completed. The Hazaribag airport can change the economy of the area and usher in fast-paced development.”

Hailing the Union Budget tabled in Parliament earlier this month, Sinha said the Budget has laid the foundation to make India an economic super power. “The Budget has provided sufficient funds for the overall development of Hazaribag too, especially when it comes to water supply and sewerage management,” he said.

Talking about roads, he said after the completion of the 41.5km stretch of NH-33 between Hazaribag and Barhi, the work on developing NH-100 between Bagodar- Hazaribag-Chatra and Palamu will be taken up. “The Budget has provided ample funds for highway development. The DPR report of this project is being made and after receiving the approval, the construction work will start too. Meanwhile, the Union minister for road, transport and highways, Nitin Gadkari, is expected to inaugurate the Barhi-Hazaribag lane of NH-33 next month,” he said.
