The second Chennai airport is currently the subject of a furious dispute. The leaders of the 13 villages surrounding Parandur, where the government plans to build the Greenfield airport on the outskirts of Chennai, met with three ministers from Tamil Nadu. At the same time, the Stalin government referred to it as a “crucial” infrastructure that would aid in the fight against Chennai airport congestion and assist the state government in reaching its goal of a US $1 trillion economy. For villagers, it is a call for displacement and loss of livelihood. The risk of flooding could grow as a result of the new airport’s construction. This is to note that the 13 village people have been demonstrating for more than 144 days. #Parandur #Chennai #TamilNadu
