Mizoram seeks partners like AAI or Adani Group to develop and manage its lone airport

The Mizoram Chief Minister, Lalduhoma, has recently announced that the state government will be handing over the operations of the Mizoram state airport to the Adani Group or the Airports Authority of India. Mizoram presently has a single operational airport in the state, which handles all the traffic and cargo. It wants to hand over the management and development activities for the same either to the global conglomerate or to AAI. As per Adani news, the steps involved in delegating airport operations will be taking place soon.

Why did the Mizoram Government plan to hand over the operations of the Mizoram airport?

Upon returning from Kolkata, the Chief Minister of Mizoram made a statement that the state government would take all the necessary steps to make a handover of the Lengpui airport as soon as possible. In referring to his recent meeting with Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister in Delhi, Lalduhoma has mentioned that he has been discussing the Assam Mizoram border dispute issues with Amit Shah, and he was quite committed to resolving the issue through the discussion.

The border dispute issues have been prevailing for quite a while now, and this has brought about a lot of disruptions in the lives of the people belonging to both states. It has also led to economic distress for both India’s states. The lives of the people have also worsened to a considerable extent. So, the Mizoram Chief Minister is no longer prepared to deal with so much violence at the interstate borders, and he believes that all the disputes should be settled between the states through dialogue.

The worst violence between Assam and Mizoram happened on 26 July 2021. The police personnel of Mizoram and Assam exchanged fire with each other in the disputed areas located near the Vairengte village on National Highway 306. It left 6 police personnel from Assam dead, and a lot more were injured. The CM is no longer ready to experience such events in the upcoming months, which is why it has decided to delegate airport operations.
