Why is BIAL getting stuck at the state level now? Here's possibly why
An anonymous comment left on my earlier post, thought it deserved more visibility.
From what I see, no. The real issue here is not the state support, which is the 350 crores over three years. Come on, a state with an annual budget of around 25,000 crores, can't it afford 100 crores a year? I am sure if the government wanted, it could have imposed a cess on the airport, or taken out a portion of the BMRTL money to fund the airport. I am sure the Manmohan dispensation could have been persuaded to give out a loan. Those are not the real issues. The real issue is that the JD-S leaders haven't pocketed money out of this project. Only the Congress under Krishna has. So, now it is their turn. How do you do that? Raise unnecessary and stupid questions about the project. Thatz what is happening here.
