Work at Andal airport in full swing

Work for the proposed airport at Andal is in full swing. Though there is widespread reporting in a section of the media that the airport is facing fresh obstacle from the agitating landowners, but the ground reality is somewhat different. Work is going on in full swing to meet the deadline of December 2012 for the first flight to be operational from the Andal airport.

The Andal airport, situated very close to Durgapur is all set to change the socio-economic face of the region. The idea of this airport conceived and started during the Left Front rule in Bengal is often considered to be one of the greatest achievements of the Left Front Government. But now it is the responsibility of the Mamata Banerjee government to meet the challenges and make this airport a reality. There is no denying the fact that the construction work at Andal airport has time and again been stalled because of the demands of the agitating landowners for higher compensation demand, but presently things have settled and the work has been going in full swing. The present government is doing its bit and the opposition is also playing a positive role. The people of Durgapur-Asansol region is hopeful and keeping their fingers crossed.
