UP CM drops opposition to Greater Noida project

DELHI

The Uttar Pradesh government has dropped its opposition to a new airport being built in Jewar near Greater Noida but wants another one at Agra, a long-pending demand of the Samajwadi Party government.

Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav conveyed this while reiterating the plea for an international airport in the city of the Taj Mahal in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that EThas reviewed, reports The Economic Times.

The state government’s proposal for an Agra airport at nearby Hirangaon in Faizabad had been rejected by the defence ministry, Yadav said. “We had then suggested Saifai in Etawah and Bhadroli in Agra as sites for the proposed airport. I would like to inform you that the pre-feasibility studies of these sites have already been conducted,” Yadav said.
