Mangaluru, Nov 25, 2020: There has been an interesting development amid the raging debate over the naming of the Mangaluru International Airport as Adani Mangalore International Airport and the suggestion to rename the airport after great personalities of Tulunad.
District Youth Congress President Mithun Rai who is in the forefront of the protest by the Congress seeking renaming of the Airport after the Tulunadu folk legends Koti-Chennaya, has sprang a surprise by putting up a huge hoarding which states “Welcome, Koti-Chennaya International Airport Mangaluru.” The name and photograph of Mithun Rai is also seen at the bottom of the hoarding.
Commenting on the hoarding, Mithun Rai said “We have been fighting to rename the Mangalore International Airport after Koti-Chennaya. “This hoarding has been put up as part of our agitation and to caution the local MP and minister,” he said
He also said the fight will continue until the demand is fulfilled.
You won’t listen to us ?— Mithun Rai (@TheMithunRai) November 25, 2020
You won’t pay heed to the sentiments of the Tuluvas ?
Neither will we agree to have #AdaniAirports boards in our city..
Mangaluru International Airport will be addressed from here onwards as the KOTI CHENNAYA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT pic.twitter.com/CjqGRRVcXb
