Why not name airport after Baba Sharfuddin?

Why not name airport after Baba Sharfuddin?

MIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi on Friday demanded that the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad be named after Hazrath Baba Sharfuddin, a Muslim saint who lived there.

Participating in the discussion on the issue in State Legislative Assembly, Akbaruddin Owaisi claimed that airport has been established on 3,000 acres of Wakf land belonging to Dargah Hazrath Baba Sharfuddin. He said that the ownership dispute was still going on in the court. He said it would be ideal if the airport is named after Baba Sharfuddin.

The MIM leader strongly opposed the proposal made by some members to rename the airport after former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao.

He said that the MIM would never allow the airport to be renamed after Narasimha Rao. Similarly, he objected to the renaming of airport after former Chief Minister late N T Rama Rao.

Akbaruddin Owaisi advised the State Government to constitute a panel, comprising representatives of all major political parties, and take their views in case the Centre asks it to propose a new.

He ridiculed the demand of some TDP leader for renaming of airport terminal after NTR. He said people know better as to who betrayed NTR and who was responsible for his death.
