This attracted criticism from the citizens in Pune as the city has been waiting for along for a dedicated civil airport for air connectivity. Many citizens reacted through their social media profiles on the matter.

“What about Pune ? Second biggest city of Maharashtra has been waiting for a full fledged civil airport for over 2 decades now. Will it materialise in the foreseeable future is the moot question. Could you Sir , as Honourable Dy CM give the project the impetus it deserves” a user tweeted.

“Sir Ji, Does your govt think that Pune is not part of Maharashtra? Not even a statement about Pune Airport? Does the city not deserve a full fledged airport?” another user tweeted.

Meanwhile local MLA of the city Siddharth Shirole tweeted “Based on the information I’ve received, the construction of the Ch. Sambhaji #Pune International Airport at Purandar is progressing as planned, with the pre-acquisition and land acquisition formalities currently underway.”
