Maharashtra CM writes to Aviation Minister to rename Aurangabad Airport

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday wrote to Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, requesting a notification on the renaming of Aurangabad airport as Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj Airport “at the earliest”.

Thackeray reminded Puri of the state government’s decision and the Maharashtra Assembly resolution in this regard, appearing to point at the delay by the Centre in the matter, reports Vishwas Waghmare for The Indian Express.

“The state Cabinet has taken a decision to rename the Aurangabad airport after Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj. A resolution on the same was also passed unanimously in both Houses of the state legislature during the Budget Session,” Thackeray said in his letter, according to a statement from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).

He also referred to the reminders sent by the Chief Secretary to the Civil Aviation ministry in this regard. “A notification to rename Aurangabad Airport as Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj Airport should be issued at the earliest,” he added. (Source: The Indian Express)
