On the other hand, Chief Minister ML Khattar’s temper escalated, in Haryana.

He sent a letter to his Punjab counterpart Prakash Singh Badal saying, “I am deeply anguished by the advertisements that appeared in various newspapers terming the Chandigarh airport as Mohali International Airport. That is factually incorrect. The fact is that the final nomenclature of this airport has not been decided by the government of India”.

He said that Haryana has contributed an equal share of Rs. 200 crore to transform the Chandigarh airport into an international airport.

The giant Hoardings across the places boasted that Punjab is the only state with two international airports.

Punjab and Haryana have been conflicting over a name for the new international airport, where Punjab wants it to be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh and Haryana wants it after Mangl Sein, former deputy chief minister of the state.

The Airports Authority of India has 51 percent equity partnership in the airport and the two state governments have 24.5 percent each.
