The CPM has approached the Central Vigilance Commission alleging irregularities in the bidding process for Thiruvananthapuram airport.
The state government has expressed stiff protest against the Central government’s plan to privatise the airport by handing it over to the Adani Group.
It was the 21st consignment that was seized.
KPCC leadership had not consulted him before they expressed their displeasure at the privatisation move, said the Thiruvananthapuram MP.
According to GTech, the government’s vision to transform the city into a world class knowledge hub could only be achieved by establishing proper air connectivity.
Per passenger fee was the criteria for the bidding process that was conducted in early 2019 for six airports - Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Mangalore, Jaipur, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram.
The Director General of Civil Aviation pointed out that this figure was very high, compared to other airports in the country. Many pilots had complained that landing at the airport is unsafe.
The first set of rapid antigen tests for expatriates returning through Thiruvananthapuram International Airport started late on Saturday.
