Punjab Government has done a stellar job in increasing the air connectivity in the state. Inaugurated on 11th September, 2015 by Prime Minister of India, Sri Narendra Modi, the new international terminal of Chandigarh airport is located in Mohali, Punjab. Haryana Governor, Kaptan Singh Solanki, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Ashok Gajapathi Raju (Union Civil Aviation Minister), CM Parkash Singh Badal, and Kirron Kher (Chandigarh MP) were also present during the inauguration. The new terminal is built for both, domestic and international flights and stands tall on ecological parameters owing to its green-building concept. The rooftop of the terminal has a 200KW solar plant, which is enough to meet the major power needs of the building.
Spread across an area of approx. 305 acres, Mohali international airport uses environment-friendly green technologies making it one-of-its-kind, not only in India, but also in the world.
A democratic setup can never be successful without people’s participation. Citizen participation is instrumental in achieving good governance and helps in decision-making process. It facilitates the government in understanding citizens’ viewpoint and getting their feedback. Moreover, our commitment towards creating a free world devoid of any prejudices and biases can only be achieved if people can ask question and raise issues. This will also keep us in tuned with ground reality. So, I encourage each and every citizen to freely discuss various issues, ask solution to your specific problem and most importantly question us on our functioning.
