Thiruvananthapuram ; The propaganda of Sabarimala airport project likely to fuse out owing to unsuitability of land identified for the purpose is baseless, said the project’s Special Officer V Thulasidharan. The feasibility report has been prepared jointly by KSIDC and consultancy company, Lui Bagrum.
It is part of the procedure to submit feasibility report to the Aviation Ministry. Upon sending the report, the Central Aviation Directorate General(DGCL) send back response comprising various questions, all of which have been meticulously answered for by KSIDC.
It is routine of central aviation authorities to be asking such questions in relation to building of an airport. During the construction phase of Kannur airport too, doubts of this nature were raised by the central aviation and the project was completed after providing answers on all counts. Incidentally, the Sabarimala airport project already has sanction from the defence ministry, said P Thulasidas in an interview with Deshabhimani.
