Beed (Maha): Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Tuesday assured construction of an airport besides improvement in rail connectivity in this district of Marathwada region.

No stones would be left unturned for construction of the airport in Beed. Also, sufficient funds would be made available for the construction of the long-pending rail routes, he said.

Improved connectivity will help in creating job opportunities and ensure faster movement of people, the NCP leader said.
