The Kerala Congress has blamed the Union Minister of State for Entrepreneurship, Skill Development, Electronics & Technology Rajeev Chandrashekar for the incident in 2016 wherein 374 people missed their flights. “Have you heard about 374 people missing their flight on a single day in Bengaluru and many had to walk to the airport? A 7 KM drive on Airport Road from Hebbal to MG Road takes between 45 mins to 1 hr. Many have missed their flights stuck in mad traffic and many would have died in ambulances. Who is responsible for this,” a post on the X handle of Kerala Congress stated.

The Kerala Congress accused Rajeev Chandrashekar of running a misinformation campaign against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the Energy Minister of Karnataka K.J George. “When Bengaluru’s new airport construction was about to be completed in 2008, Yeddyurappa Govt took over. To create a signal-free corridor from MG Road to Hebbal, BJP govt came up with stupid solutions like narrow precast underpasses, which created the whole problem. Amid heavy traffic woes post-new airport success, Siddaramaiah Govt (2013) initiated a 6.7km, 6-lane steel flyover costing 1350 Cr to reduce travel time to 10 mins. Rajeev Chandrashekar started his campaign using his media channels and hired activists saying that Congress is doing this because they want to make money. They ran a huge misinformation campaign against KJ George and Siddaramaiah Govt. Finally, the project was abandoned after awarding a contract to L&T. What is the end result? In 2016 an incident happened where 374 people missed their flights,”the post added.
