Days after Karnataka cabinet decided to name the under-construction airport at Shivamogga’s Sogane after BS Yediyurappa, the former chief minister has requested the government to reconsider the decision.
In a letter written to CM Bommai on Sunday, Yediyurappa expressed gratitude to the Cabinet members for considering hs name. He however urged the government to name the the airport after any illustrious personality of Karnataka which will be a befitting tribute to their contribution.
Compared to service of others, my contribution seems insignificant. In this backdrop it would be inappropriate to name the airport after me, he wrote.
He further wrote that the government should deliberate over the matter and consider name of any illustrious personality who has worked for the development of the nation and state
