“In the first 70 years of India’s independence, only 74 airports were there in the country. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s guidance, the government has successfully inaugurated 54 airports in the last seven years of his governance in the country. With this, 128 airports have been set up in the country,” said the Union Minister.
