The spectacular air show by the air force teams is one of the biggest attractions in the Visakha celebrations every year. The Air Force teams had already landed in Visakhapatnam and had been conducting trial air shows as part of Visakha Utsav for the last few hours. But suddenly, NDA government withdrew permission to the Indian Air Force to conduct Air Show at Visakha Utsav without any reason.
This was the biggest embarrassment to Telugu Desam Party government headed by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. It seems centre is merely taking revenge on Naidu for standing against to the centre and PM Modi. Naidu’s refusal to extend protocol to Modi on the latter’s proposed visit to Guntur on January 6, with which Modi cancelled AP tour, seems the cause for the cancellation of air show at the eleventh hour.
