Minister expresses displeasure over construction of new terminal building at Chakeri airport

Kanpur: Minister for civil aviation, UP, Nand Gopal Gupta Nandi, visited the under-construction new terminal building of Chakeri airport on Wednesday and expressed his displeasure over slow pace of working.

He said carelessness would not be tolerated. The government would not only lodge FIRs against the officials of UP Rajkiya Nirman Nigam, the construction agency but even send them to jail, he warned. The agency could even be blacklisted if it failed to complete the job in the stipulated time, he said, and added the construction work of the civil enclave of Chakeri airport must be completed by December 31.

During the minister’s visit to the Chakeri airport on November 1, the people’s representatives and passengers had complained to him about delay in construction of the civil enclave.

Witnessing an increase in the number of passengers at the airport and after receiving the inquiry report, he came to know that the construction agency was not serious in constructing the building in time.

In view of the complaints, the aviation minister on Wednesday visited Kanpur and chaired the review meeting which was attended among others by regional executive director Airport Authority of India DK Kamra, district magistrate Kanpur Nagar, Vishak G Iyer, officer of UP Rajkiya Nirman Nigam Satyaveer, additional director, civil aviation department Vishwa Bhushan Mishra, nodal officer Moti Rai and director, Chakeri airport BK Jha.
