President Kalam's visit delayed

india Updated: Dec 23, 2006 11:44 IST

President APJ Kalam's visit to the city on Saturday was delayed after fog at the Delhi airport disrupted flight schedules.

The President, who was to arrive in the city in the morning, is likely to arrive only by the afternoon, officials said.

The President is on a day-long visit to the city where he will be addressing a summit organised by alumni of the Indian Institute of Technology and also inaugrating new facilities at the Jaslok Hospital in south Mumbai.

Dense fog at the Delhi airport led to flight delays early this morning with visibility dipping to 75 metres early this morning, forcing activation of CAT-III instrument landing system.
