Opposition to MOPA is growing, many in favour of retaining Dabolim Airport as the only Airport of Goa. Many even feel including some MLAs/Ministers that Navy should shift it's base to nearby Karwar Seabird which is about 100kms from here.
Dabolim is centrally located where as the proposed MOPA is located at the extreme north (Closer to Maharastra State border).
One of the main reasons where people oppose the proposed MOPA airport is that they fear that existing Dabolim Airport will be closed for civilian use once MOPA is commissioned on the grounds of National Security.
Goa's Anjediva Island near Karwar which was handed over to NAVY with a condition that Goans or Civilian people will be given access to the Island i.e. 2nd Feb every year so as to enable them to celebrate traditional feast of Our Lady of Brotas at the Church (Oldest Church) located on the Island.
However, Navy refused to entertain Civilians on the day giving security reasons.
Now, people feel, Dabolim Airport too will be lost on similar grounds when Goa has two airports.
