Trying to placate Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh after a row over the proposed Navi Mumbai airport, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel Thursday said he would work “closely” with “my friend” to move ahead with the project. “We are trying for the second airport in Mumbai to meet the growing air traffic. My friend and cabinet colleague (Ramesh) is sitting here and we will move forward together. Whatever the newspapers may say, we are trying to do it together,” Patel said in the Lok Sabha. He was trying to mollify Ramesh after the environment minister last month refused to give a nod to an airport in Navi Mumbai saying its construction would damage mangrove cultivation in nearly 2,000 hectares.On the congestion at the Delhi airport, Patel said the new T3 runway would commence domestic operations by October.
