Mad­hya Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Shivraj Singh Chouhan has asked Union Min­is­ter for Avi­a­tion Ashok Ga­jap­athi Raju Pusap­ati for ex­clu­sive cargo ter­mi­nals in In­dore and Bhopal air­ports to make faster trans­porta­tion of per­ish­able prod­ucts pos­si­ble from the state.

The Union Min­is­ter was on a one-day visit to Bhopal with a del­e­ga­tion of top ex­ec­u­tives from Air In­dia and other pri­vate avi­a­tion com­pa­nies in­clud­ing Jet Air­ways, Indigo and Spice Jet.

The Union Min­is­ter praised the Chief Min­is­ter for his in­sight into cap­tur­ing what could a very prof­itable ven­ture both for air­lines com­pa­nies and for the en­trepreneurs from the state.

"This is for the first time that the avi­a­tion min­istry has re­ceived an invitation from a state gov­ern­ment to visit and re­solve the prob­lems of civil avi­a­tion," Union Min­is­ter Ashok Ga­jap­ati Raju said.

"The Chief Min­is­ter has asked for cargo ter­mi­nals, a con­cept that when in­tro­duced can be a highly prof­itable ven­ture. The state wants cold stor­age fa­cil­i­ties in air­ports to fa­cil­i­tate business ac­tiv­i­ties," he added.

Chief Min­is­ter Chouhan said that he has also so­licited for bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity of Mad­hya Pradesh with other parts of the coun­try. The state is not just de­mand­ing air con­nec­tiv­ity on new routes spe­cially south and in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions, but also an ex­clu­sive cargo ter­mi­nal.
