Sindhia favours holding dialogue with BIAL

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: The former Minister P.G.R. Sindhia has requested the Union Minister for Civil Aviation Praful Patel to initiate a dialogue that could pave the way for reopening the HAL Airport in Bangalore.

In a letter to the Minister, Mr Sindhia said the Centre should have a dialogue with Bangalore International Airport Ltd. (BIAL), the Karnataka Government and other authorities. He said: “When the concessional agreement was entered into, it was not envisaged that the air traffic will increase to such an extent. Both the State and the Centre have spent for the upgrade of the HAL airport.”
