Dear Editor ,
The Kannada news channel tody reported that 15 flights would commence from 5 Dec 2018 from Belgaum Airport.This contradicts with your post. Can you please clarify.
Our MP in his press release said 10-12 and we stick to that statement we cant make our own
Hope all the promises made here are true. We have had many broken promises in the past, of course we are not in the past, let us press forward with hope of tomorrow!
