SDF welcomes Modi’s comments on Pakyong Airport

The Sikkim Democratic Front has welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's comments on the Pakyong Airport project at a meeting he chaired on Wednesday to review progress towards achievement of targets in the connectivity-related infrastructure sectors of roads, railways, shipping and civil aviation.
A Press Information Bureau press release informs that while reviewing the civil aviation sector, the Prime Minister said that states should be made partners in working out and maintaining the viability of new international airports proposed to be set up within their territory. “The Prime Minister expressed satisfaction over the beginning of work at Pakyong Airport in Sikkim. It was noted that with the beginning of the second route for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, and the thrust of Sikkim as an organic state, this airport would be able to cater to a huge demand for air services. A new civil aviation policy is under preparation,” the PIB press release details.
The Prime Minister’s continuing recognition of developments in Sikkim and its future prospects has clearly spread joy in the SDF camp. “The SDF party welcomes the positive observation and the decision adopted in the said meeting chaired by the Prime Minister,” states a press release issued by SDF spokesperson KT Gyaltsen.
During the course of the review, the Prime Minister also directed strict monitoring of projects, based on monthly completion targets. Emphasizing that there is now no delay in decision-making at the highest level, the Prime Minister said it should now be possible to achieve all infrastructure targets. He urged top officials to undertake cyber-visits of all major project locations at least once a month, so that they could keep track of the progress of work on a real-time basis.
