New Delhi: The Kerala government has filed an application in the High Court seeking a stay on the central government’s decision to lease out Thiruvananthapuram International Airport to Adani Enterprises.

The state government has submitted that the airport was handed over to a private entity while ignoring the state’s opposition. Moreover, a petition was already pending in the court questioning the 50-year lease.

Last year, the state government had filed a petition in the high court challenging the decision, but the High Court dismissed it, terming it as not maintainable under Article 226 of the Constitution. The state government then filed an appeal before the Supreme Court against the High Court order. The Supreme Court thereafter set aside the judgement of the high court and the matter was sent back to it for a decision on merit.
