New Delhi,January 8
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Sanjeev Arora has written a letter to Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia seeking the resumption of flights from Ludhiana in Punjab under UDAN, in the same way as other airports in the state are operational under UDAN.
‘Let the common citizen of the country fly’ was launched by the Government of India with the aim of Ude-Desh-Ka-Aam-Nagrik (UDAN), but some airports and UDAN operations in Punjab have not been reopened even after COVID, as per the AAP lawmaker. Arora requested in his letter, “resumption of flights to Ludhiana from Sahnewal airport till the time Halwara Airport is operational. There was a flight under UDAN to Ludhiana which was stopped in Covid times and never started again”.
