Connect Ambikapur to Banaras by air: CAIT

Sunday, 22 November 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

nThe Confederation of All India Traders' (CAIT) Raipur chapter wants Ambikapur in Chhattisgarh connected to Banaras by air.

The CAIT handed over a memorandum to Chhattisgarh Health Minister T.S. Singh Deo which was addressed to Union Minister for Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday, a press release said.

They demanded direct flight services from Raipur to Banaras in Uttar Pradesh via Ambikapur.

A delegation of CAIT headed by state President Amar Parwani met Singh Deo, MLA from Ambikapur.

Parwani told the Minister that the traders of Ambikapur and Raipur enjoyed historical relations with the traders of Banaras (Varanasi) but are facing difficulty in expanding the commercial activities due to absence of quick transport from Ambikapur.

Traders commute to Banaras either by road or rail. The journey takes a long time and is tedious and so it affects the commercial activities, CAIT said.

Parwani said the Minister promised to help resolve their problems and bring the issue to the knowledge of the Union Minister.
