Mayawati for reviving Greater NOIDA international airport project

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday said that she took the matter of reviving the Greater NOIDA international airport project with Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

New Delhi, May 26 : Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday said that she took the matter of reviving the Greater Noida International Airport project with Prime Minister Dr. Dr Manmohan Singh.

Mayawati urged Dr. Singh to give his nod to the stalled International Airport project near Aligarh and Varanasi-Delhi expressway. The airport project was conceived during her last tenure as the Chief Minister.

"I have brought to the notice of the Prime Minister that my last government had initiated a project at Jewar near Aligarh, called the International Taj Airport. But the previous government did not carry it forward. Now keeping in mind the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project, the international airport project should be started again," Mayawati said after her first meeting with Prime Minister Dr Singh since becoming Chief Minister.

Keeping in view its proximity to Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project, the airport will have a vital role to play in the industrial development of the State.

Mayawati said Dr. Singh has assured Central help to put Uttar Pradesh back on track.

"Our government requested that the delayed projects in the State under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission should be restarted and completed as soon as possible," she said.

She said that previous Mulayam Singh Yadav Government had deliberately adopted a hostile relationship towards the Centre.

"Because of this hostile relationship, the development work in UP remained stopped and all ways to receive resources were blocked," claimed Mayawati.

"My government will have cooperative relations with the Centre and will not allow politics to come in the way of state`s development," she added.

She said she had apprised the Prime Minister about the ground realities in the State and sought an aid of Rs 15,000 crore for an overall development of the State, and development of areas such as infrastructure, fertilisers, tourism, power, airport and finance.

She did not make any comment on the Presidential election.

Meanwhile, talks are doing the round that Mayawati has extended her party's support to the Congress's candidate for the position of President.
