Demand for change in schedule of Nanded return flight

A retired principal, Kulwant Singh, said, “It is a desirable move that the national carrier pressed in its flight for connecting the Akal Takht with the Takht Hazur Sahib. Though, the flight operates on Saturday and Sunday which doesn't give enough days for the pilgrims to see all historic gurdwaras in and around Nanded. There should be a gap of at least three days between the flights.”

He said there were over 12 historic gurdwaras in Nanded. Besides, there are historical Sikh religious places in Bidar town. Bidar has Gurdwara Nanak Jheera, which is believed to have been visited by Guru Nanak Dev centuries ago. Besides, the gurdwara is dedicated to Mata Bhago, who had inspired 40 Muktas to fight for Guru Gobind Singh, also falls on the way to Bidar from Nanded.

MP Gurjeet Singh Aujla said the flight became a success as it was receiving a good number of passengers. He said it provided the convenient journey to the passengers who used to spend around 36 hours in trains to reach Nanded from Amritsar. The same distance by air consumes about two-and-a-half hours.
