Are 2 airports feasible: HC

Are 2 airports feasible: HC
Bangalore, dhns:

The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday directed the government to give a clear picture on the two airports. The Bench also asked the government for details of problems, if any, in case two airports functioned.
Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph was hearing a petition seeking a stay on the order to close down HAL airport.
Advocate G R Mohan, who argued on behalf of the petitioner, said it was much easier to reach the HAL airport than the new international airport at Devanahalli, which is about 40 km from here. Hence, it is a waste of time for those travelling to cities like Chennai and Mumbai, he argued. The hearing on the petition was postponed to March 4.
BMIC details sought
The HC directed the government to furnish details regarding the number cases pending before the Supreme Court involving the Bangalore-Mysore Expressway project. The HC Bench comprising Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph passed the order while dismissing a petition by social activist N Mune Gowda alleging the project was in violation of the original plan.
