Aranmula airport: Centre won't take decision, says Environment Ministertext_fields
New Delhi: Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave Saturday said the Central government would not take any decision on the Aranmula airport project.
"It's up to the state government to take the final decision on the matter. The state should inform whether it needs the project or not,” Dave told reporters.
The project, promoted by KGS Group, had run into trouble when it was mooted nearly seven years ago with environment groups and people in the area holding that it would cause environmental hazards.
The National Green Tribunal had in 2014 set aside the environmental clearance given by UPA government to the project and directed KGS Aranmula International Airport Ltd, the promoters, to stop construction at the site.
