Shabby BIA not international, says state panel

The state legislature committee has given a thumbs down to the Bengaluru International Airport (BIA), dismissing it as 'shabby.'
The committee headed by BJP MLA D Hemachandra Sagar is said to have come down heavily on BIA, calling it unfit for an international status. It has recommended construction of a new terminal with international standards. The committee is expected to submit the report during the next legislative session, which begins on December 14.
The committee was constituted to examine whether BIA conformed to international standards in construction, passenger services and aesthetics, after several legislators, including Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee working president DK Shivakumar, alleged gross irregularities in implementing the BIA project.
