• Ranchi: CM assures support to improve air connectivity in state

    All five Divisions in Jharkhand will soon get connected through air routes. Chief Minister Raghubar Das said that the State Government was ready to provide all support to the Government of India to get five divisions connected through air routes.

    Das, during his inaugural speech of the newly constructed Cargo Complex at Birsa Munda Airport here on Friday, was reacting to the request made by Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha.

    “I support the proposal made by the Union Minister of State and request him to start the work in all the five divisions as it is you who has to show the pace,” said the Chief Minister. The work of the construction and up-gradation of airports in all the five divisions will be started soon in the next 2-3 months.

    Sinha, seeking support of the State Government, had requested Das to connect all the five divisions in Jharkhand through air routes which will bring pace in the business. He also assured all support from the Ministry of Civil Aviation and said that all necessary funds will be released in this regard. Now, the ball was in the State Government’s court, he added.

    “From April 1, four more flights of Air Asia will take off from Ranchi, including a morning flight to Delhi and an evening flight from Delhi to Ranchi enabling passengers to return same day from Delhi,” said Sinha. In addition to that, Hyderabad and Chennai will also be connected soon from Ranchi, he said.

    Sinha further said that the new Cargo Complex was an achievement for Jharkhand through which any product could be made available to any part of the country as around 25-30 tonnes of cargo is transported everyday out of which the major part is of on-line products. Teemu Pulkkinen Womens Jersey
