New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today announced that Chandigarh airport to be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh as a tribute to the great freedom fighter at his Mann Ki Baat.

This is not the first time when the proposal to rename the airport after Bhagat Singh has been made.

During his monthly radio show, PM Modi also requested people to share their views on the campaign for naming cheetahs brought to India from Nambia last week. The cheetahs were released in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park.

“It will be great if the naming of cheetahs is in tune with our traditions. Also, suggest how humans should treat animals. Participate in this contest & maybe you could be the 1st one to witness the cheetahs,” PM Modi added.

This is a developing story.
