Name of New Airport

The topic of a new Chandigarh Airport is big in Punjabmarker and Haryana. The Name has been an ongoing issue. At first the Airport was to be named Mohali International Airport, since it is in the suburb of Mohalimarker in Chandigarh. But since Chandigarh is a Union Territory, Haryana also will have a share in the Airport, and since Mohali is on the Punjab side of the city, Haryana felt the name of Mohali International Airport will not show Haryana's share in the airport. For now the two states have agreed on a name for the airport, Chandigarh International Airport.[373197][373198]Lately Haryana fully support the naming of the international airport of Chandigarh as Shaheed Bhagat Singh International Airport.[373199]
