AAP opposes construction of Mopa airport in Goa

PANAJI

The Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday attacked the proposed Mopa airport in North Goa as a “big land scam involving 84 lakh sqm of people’s land”, and backed continuation of Dabolim international airport as sufficient for Goa’s needs for next 100 years.

This was a clear stand taken on Sunday by AAP’s South Goa candidate Swati Kerkar who has been long associated with Goans For Only Dabolim (GFOD), a movement which spearheads opposition to dual airports for Goa.

In the same press conference, the North Goa candidate of AAP Dattaram Desai, however, took a muted stand saying he was aware of diverse opinions on Mopa airport issue, but he was yet to study full issue.
