Fuel tax sops for night halt flights at city airport: CM

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : Tamil Nadu Government will provide tax concession for fuel to night halt flights at Coimbatore airport, according to Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy.

This would help to bring in more connectivity to important and major cities of the country, Palanisamy told reporters here. However, he evaded a question on Karnataka political developments.

Earlier, he dedicated to the public a police museum, which was converted from the over 100-year-old Hamilton Police Club in front of the city railway station.

The museum will be opened to the students, youth as also the public which should help them enhance their knowledge about the department and its history, he said.

Weapons seized from slain forest brigand Veerappan, a mini submarine seized from Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a T-55 tank used in Kargil war and weapons seized from Malaiyoor Mambattiyan are on display.

The museum, renovated at a cost of Rs 60 lakh, also has a mobile fire engine, mortars from Navy, besides pistols, revolver and missiles.

The police department had decided to demolish the building, considering its condition due to lack of proper, maintenance. Former City Police Commissioner Dr A Amalraj took the initiative three years ago to convert the 144-year-old building into museum.

Municipal Administration Minister S P Velumani, State DGP Rajendran and senior district and police officials were present at the inaugural function.
