Thanks to Brinda for fighting against this expensive project. Government clearly can not run both the airports, then what is the point in spending thousands of crores in expanding this airport. Instead Govt should spend all its effort in speeding up the new airport work. That is what an efficient government can do. But these politicians dont know what they are doing.We all with you Brinda !- jayavel
Thank U Mrs. Brinda Brighton,you have taken up the causes of hundreds of people living around the airport who are likely to be displaced in event of the parallel runway becomes a reality. We are with u in giving a fight against the Airports Authority of India and Government of Tamilnadu. I pray that good sense will prevail in the minds of those and they will resort to the the Greenfield Airport at Sriperumudur instead of displacing thousands of families in and around Manappakkam. What disturbs all of us is that the State of Tamilnadu is contemplating to acquire lands in and around Manappakkam despite the fact that CMDA gave clearance for the lands involved in Marvel River View County some where around the early 2006. What made the State Government to come out with a revised area for acquisition in May, 2007. What happened in between? May God bless us and our home sweet homes.With prayers.R. NATARAJAN.
