Narayanpur people object to alternate airport

TULSIPUR: People from Narayanpur of Dang district have been agitated over government's plan to set up an alternative airport in Dang.

The government had incorporated a plan to set up an alternate airport in the recent policy and programme for coming fiscal year and has initiated the process accordingly.

They argued that it was not logical to set up an alternative airport while there was already an airport in Tulsipur which needed to be upgraded and brought into operation rather than constructing a new one.

The locals also warned of not allowing land for constructing the new airport.
