The Union Cabinet meeting will be conducted today evening.

The Union Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, authorized the renaming of Greenfield Airport at Hollongi, Itanagar to “Donyi Polo Airport, Itanagar” last month, on November 2. The State Government of Arunachal Pradesh passed a resolution naming the airport ‘Donyi Polo Airport, Itanagar,’ which reflects the people’s reverence for the Sun (Donyi) and the Moon (Polo) to symbolize the State’s traditions and rich cultural heritage, according to a statement from the Union Cabinet.

In January 2019, the Indian government granted ‘in-principle’ approval for the development of Hollongi Greenfield Airport.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) is developing the project at a cost of Rs. 646 crore with the assistance of Central Government and State Government of Arunachal Pradesh.
