  • Kyu nahi Designer bhai.

    INLO should support the initiative and even take credit, if in regime in next election. If INLO gets farmers on its side, only the location might change tomorrow. It is the second time Hooda raised this request, this time for cargo though.

    His earlier petition for passenger Airport wasn't heard. Cargo petition, however, has huge benefits to Center Govt as well, if they have not planned under T3 initiative. Lets see how this one goes.

    CHANDIGARH/KARNAL: Haryana will soon take wings. The state is set to have its first ever domestic flight connectivity with two civil airports and a cargo airport approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), 100 years after the first commercial flight flew between Karachi and Delhi in the then united India in 1912.

    The two domestic airports will be built in Karnal and Hisar while the cargo airport will come up at Rohtak.
