Punjab government has decided to build a new domestic airport at Adampur in the district to cater to people of the Doaba region, especially NRIs.


The state government has prepared the blue print for the airport at Adampur, Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said at a rally in Jamsher, after laying the foundation stone of various development projects worth Rs. 50 crore.

He said the new airport would prove a boon for the whole region as it would facilitate businessmen and traders as well as NRIs from the Doaba region.

Sukhbir said he is in constant touch with the Union Ministry for Civil Aviation for necessary approvals.

Replying to a question about the alert issued by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) regarding threat to BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, he said the alert issued by IB was a routine matter and "there is no threat to Modi in the state."

Modi is expected to visit the state next month to address a public meeting.

Badal also laid the foundation stone of a storm sewer from PAP Chowk to BSF Chowk and a four-lane bypass from Jalandhar-Phagwara Road to Jalandhar-Nakodar Road at village Jamsher.
