Kurnool: Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu has said the greenfield airport being constructed at Orvakal will help weed out faction feuds in Kurnool district. With the construction of the airport, many industries will come up in the district thus helping business in this area and generating more employment.

The Chief Minister, who laid the foundation stone for the airport on Wednesday, said that it will be constructed in 2,000 acres at a cost of Rs 120 crore. He said as of now businessmen of Kurnool have to go either to Hyderabad or to Bengaluru airports by travelling hundreds of kilometres for not having the airport facility in Kurnool. He said the Orvakal airport would be constructed with international standards and would be completed just in a year.

Naidu also laid the foundation stone for a food processing unit at Tangadancha village in Jupadubungla mandal. The food processing unit is being established by the Jain Irrigation System at a cost of Rs 400 crore.

He also inaugurated a school building constructed at a cost of Rs 7 crore funds of the Self Help Groups. CPM district secretary K Prabhakar Reddy said the construction of the airport is to benefit the realtors only.

Very few persons like TG Venkatesh, Butta Renuka, KE Krishna Murthy and group-I officers may benefit from the airport, he said, adding that no common man can get any benefit from the airport. Prabhakar Reddy also made allegations that the government is confined only to laying foundation stones and it won’t strive for its completion.

Recalling the foundation stone laid for the construction of Urdu University, he said the University has been proposed in an extent of 125 acres, but there is no trace of it till date.
