Following is a report from the TNIE:

JHARSUGUDA: A special Pallisabha was conducted to acquire 9.6 acre of forest land for extension of Jharsuguda air strip at Talmal village under Dur langa panchayat of Jharsuguda block on Tuesday.

Jharsuguda BDO TR Majhi conducted the Pallisabha while Ward member Fakir Mohan Kishan presided. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) wants the additional land for the runways and construction of another terminal building to cater to the increase in number of passengers. Hundreds of villagers, who attended the Pallisabha, voluntarily favoured transfer of the land for the proposed extension of the air strip. On the other hand, they demanded appointment of the villagers in AAI as per their qualifications and payment of compensation to the occupants of the Government land.

Jharsuguda Tehsildar Bhawesh Naik said the airport used during the World War II requires 118.65 acre of land in Talmal, Durlaga and Malimunda villages of which 56.12 acre is private land and rest 66.63 acre belongs to the Government.

    Thanks the villagers for thir cooperative attitude. They should be properly compensated and absorbed in jobs of the airport suitable to their skills, qualification etc. Rest be absorbed in class iv jobs like gardener, watchmen, watermen, attendant etc.
