I was disturbed when I first read that only 7 airports, and not 35 like the PM had claimed, were made operational int he past 4 years.

I did some digging around. I was aghast at how lazy the "fact checkers" are & how excited they get to peddle agenda…
Alleged "fact checkers" cite Lok Sabha replies, saying 31 airports are non-operational. Turns out there are other Lok Sabha replies that tell us 25 airports are "operational" but are not in use. So we are looking at 56 not in use airports.…
