A joint action committee was constituted today to oppose the construction of a greenfield road to the proposed Kannur airport.
Action committee patron M Muhammed Ali told newspersons here that they would not allow construction of greenfield road.
The action committee also demanded that government should constitute a parliamentary committee to study the necessity of Kannur Airport like the Aranmula Airport.
The parliamentary committee chaired by Seetharam Yechury noted that the proposed Aranmula airport was in violation of the principle of 150 kms distance rule and the saturation of the nearby existing air ports, so committee demanded to reconsideration by the government. Karipur airport in Malappuram and Bajpe airport in Mangalore are the nearest airports in Kannur.
