Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)leader Praful Patel today questioned the Narendra Modi government as to why the Vadodara airport was not being named after Vadodara's erstwhile ruler late Sayajirao Gaekwad.
Patel said that the erstwhile ruler had established the the world-famous Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda as well as the Bank of Baroda in 1908.
He added that the ruler had also given a educational scholarship to Dalit icon Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar.
He claimed that the demand was close to the heart of the people of Vadodara.
