Workers of the ruling Shiv Sena party in Maharashtra, on Monday, vandalised and removed boards naming the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai as Adani Airport.
Shiv Sena has been vehemently opposing renaming of the Mumbai airport after the Adani Group.
Adani name was put on board after the Adani Group acquired the management of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.
The Adani Group controls 74 per cent stake in the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport.
Shiv Sena has said that the Mumbai Airport’s name is Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Airport and the Adani group has “no right” to change the name.
A board was put up at the VIP gate of the Kalina area naming the Mumbai airport as Adani Airport, which was removed by the Shiv Sena workers on Monday.
Notably, the Adani Group has made major investments in the aviation sector in the last couple of years.
Now, many major airports in the country are now being managed and operated by the Adani Group.
