Jewar Airport Is Not About Politics, Says Mahesh Sharma

Jewar Airport Is Not About Politics, Says Mahesh Sharma

Many see Union Cabinet approval’s for a second airport in the National Capital Region at Jewar, about 100 km from New Delhi, as the BJP’s political strategy in Uttar Pradesh ahead of next assembly elections and some call it a political victory for Civil Aviation Minister Mahesh Sharma.
However, Sharma plays down the political buzz around Jewar airport saying, “It’s a long pending demand addressed in nick of time. At times politics is not everything.”
Speaking to Mail Today, Sharma, who is an MP from Gautam Budh Nagar, said, “I am a public servant working in the larger interest of the national civil aviation sector and the consumers linked to it. There is nothing like political victory or defeat in such public-centric infrastructure projects. It has been a long pending demand and how long eight crore population in the NCR will have to depend on one airport in New Delhi, which three-four hour drive away.”
