Flight to Delhi starts from Andal, WB CM among the first passengers
West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee today left for for Delhi by taking the first ever flight from Andal to the national capital.
The Chief Minister reached Durgapur today at around 2 PM and held a meeting with the business delegation from the Asansol-Durgapur region and representatives of the Chamber of Commerce.
“My best wishes to everyone. Flights for Delhi will commence from Andal today. This move will help people in south Bengal as well as neighbouring areas in Jharkhand. Travelling to Delhi will be hassle-free now,” she said.
The Chief Minister is expected to meet the Prime Minister on Tuesday and will reiterate the demands of the State before him. The State has still been denied of its previously allotted funds as well as the promised aid for the flood situation, from the Centre.
The Andal Airport is one of the greatest achievements of the Trinamool Government as it connects the industrial zone with the rest of the country.
The West Bengal Chief Minister is expected to visit the Trinamool Congress Parliamentary Party Office and may pay a visit to the Parliament Central Hall as well.
