Altering of Imphal airport to ‘Lamka’ a gross negligence & conspiracy: RK Imo Singh writes to Aviation minister


Imphal: Manipur legislator RK Imo Singh sought investigation to initiate action regarding the name ‘Lamka” added as part of the address of ATO Imphal Airport in Air India ticket in a letter to Union Minister for Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Calling it an act of negligence and conspiracy, RK Imo Singh, MLA from Sagolband AC wrote, “It has come to our knowledge through various social media platforms that few Air India tickets have mentioned the ATO office of Imphal, Manipur as Air India, ATO Imphal Airport, Lamka. This is totally unacceptable on the part of Air India to have made this gross error and act of negligence/conspiracy to have altered the name from Imphal to Lamka in the official ticket.”
