Agra, Feb 29 (IANS) A group of business leaders and social activists here on Monday demanded an international airport at Agra.
The group unanimously demanded upgradation of the existing Kheria airport as an international airport with modern amenities.
“Since there is a consensus of opinion there should be no hurdle. Agra being India’s most important tourist centre, visited by millions of tourists annually, deserves (better) air connectivity,” a senior corporator Shiromani Singh told IANS.
Before elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised Agra an international airport, but he has forgotten, an activist Ekta Agarwal said.
