Arunachal Pradesh governor reviews progress of Hollongi Airport

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh governor Brig (Retd) B D Mishra on Friday called upon the state and Airports Authority of India (AAI) officials involved in the Hollongi Greenfield Airport construction project to work with determination so as to make the airport operational by August 15 next year.

Mishra, who reviewed the progress of construction work on the day, said that it is the duty of every official concerned with the project to ensure that the ground efforts go without any slippage and error.

“All departments like the environment & forests, power, public health engineering and water supply, public works, land management and the administration must put their shoulders together to make up for the backlog of work due to the Coronavirus pandemic among others,” he said.

The work on the Greenfield Airport had slowed down substantially due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in the state.

Further interacting with senior officers of the departments involved in the project, the governor advised them to enhance the materials, workforce, plants and machines in an integrated and well supervised way to make up for the shortfall and meet the deadline.

Civil aviation secretary Swapnil Naik and AAI general manager Dilip M Sajnani briefed the governor on the ground progress and critical issues for timely completion.
