Indore: Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has made a statement in the recent past emphasizing making aviation services affordable to the common man in the country. In this statement, he said, "The Narendra Modi government also wants to facilitate air travel to a person wearing air slippers.'' In fact, Scindia was in Indore last Thursday. "We want to provide affordable air travel facility to the common people," he told reporters in Indore. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has repeatedly said that this facility should be such that even a person wearing air slippers can travel by air. India has every capacity to realize this resolution.
At the same time, he added, "The plan to expand air services in the country is being worked out with the objective of making more and more ordinary people travel by air in the coming decade. During the last four years, new airports have been set up in several smaller cities under the expansion of the domestic civil aviation sector.'' With this, air services have been introduced on new routes connecting these places to big cities. Further, on evacuating people from Afghanistan, he said, "The Central Government will make all efforts like the 'Vande Bharat Mission' to bring back Indian citizens from Afghanistan.''
You must be aware that the Vande Bharat Mission was launched by the Government of India to bring back Indians stranded abroad after the suspension of regular international flights following the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic last year. Let me tell you that Scindia had reached Shajapur in Madhya Pradesh last Tuesday evening as part of his 'Jan Arshivad Yatra'. "The Government of India will bring back its citizens from Afghanistan as far as possible from Air India or Indian Air Force aircraft," he told reporters late in the night. As we did in the Vande Bharat Mission.
