We had earlier reported that there is a proposal for a new greenfield airport at Vizag. AP CM Chandranbabu Naidu and also the central aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju have spoken about it. There was also a talk of a central team finding suitable locations and reports about S.Rayavaram being a likely location. READ the earlier reports here.

Now, the aviation secretary V.Somasundram says that there is no immediate proposal regarding the same. He clarifies that no such proposal is under government’s consideration. READ the Eenadu report regarding the same here.

We feel the CM and the central minister hailing from the region should come forward to clarify regarding the same. After all, speaking in multiple voices is not good for the credibility of either the state or the central government
