Chandigarh, Dec 5 (UNI) Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda has sought intervention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in granting permission to set up a Greenfield Airport-cum-Cargo Air Complex within the National Capital region (NCR) region falling in Haryana.
In a letter addressed to Dr Manmohan Singh, Mr Hooda said that in Haryana Government's proposal, permission had been sought for construction of a brand new airport catering to lower cost passenger services, air cargo, private operators, helicopter services and aircraft maintenance services at a site covering an area of 4347 acres in Jhajjar district.
This site was located in villages of Mandothi, Jakhoda, Rohad, Saidpur and Tanda Heri in tehsil Bahadurgarh near the intersection of National Highway No 10 and the Kundli Manesar Palwal (KMP) Expressway.
