Dabolim will soon be a ghost airport : Yuri Alemao


Mragao :

Revenge of Loksabha Defeat? Aerofloat  announces shifting of its operations from Dabolim to Mopa. One more blow to South Goa by insensitive BJP Government. Soon Dabolim will turn into a Ghost Airport destroying Economy of South Goa. Will Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant continue to give lip service or act?, questioned Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao.

Reacting to the annoucement of Aerofloat Airlines to shift its operations to Mopa International Airport, Leader of Opposition slammed BJP Government for promoting Private Operators at the cost of Public Sector Undertakings.

I demand that Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant should immediately convene a Meeting of all Elected MLAs  and Member of Parliament of South Goa along with all concerned Authorities and Stakeholders and later take a Delegation to the Prime Minister of India to ensure that Dabolim International Airport continues, stated Yuri Alemao.

I had raised the alarm bell in 2022 that Dabolim Airoport will turn into a Ghost Airport if Government does not take pro-active steps to continue its operations. Unfortunately, Government did nothing and remained a mute spectator of Airlines shifting one after the other, claimed Yuri Alemao.

I had alerted Government after Quatar Airways had announced shifting of its operations to Mopa and warned that slowly all Airlines will shift to Mopa. It looks like i will be proved right soon, said Yuri Alemao.

BJP Government is deliberately ignoring the damage done to Dabolim Airport due to BJP’s weak base in South Goa. They want South Goa to suffer because People of South Goa do not support BJP’s policies and agenda, said Yuri Alemao.
