Chandigarh: Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said that there was a general consensus on naming Chandigarh's new airport terminal after Bhagat Singh and a formal decision in this regard should not be delayed any more. Badala senior appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene personally to put an end to any controversy on the issue. "A proposal to this effect is already with the government of India and we all assume and still remain convinced that considering the massive national following Sardar Bhagat Singh enjoys, no one would even consider opposing the proposal," an official statement quoting the chief minister said.
