Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath arrived at the expressway runway today, just before the opening of the Purvanchal Expressway, and assessed the preparations. From here tomorrow, Prime Minister Modi will hand over the Purvanchal Highway to the country. It took a total of 36 months to build this 341 km long Purvanchal Highway, while the total cost has reached Rs 22,500 million.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the airstrip today and said in a conversation with the media that he will open the doors of development in Purvanchal. This will benefit both Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Along with this, it will also be a gift from the dual-engine government. CM Yogi said that there will be air shows in front of the Prime Minister on this airstrip. Mirage-2000, Sukhoi-30 and Jaguar aircraft will participate in this air show. But before that, Prime Minister Modi himself will land on the runway built in the middle of this Hercules Aircraft Purvanchal Express.
Let us tell you that during the last 3 days, the aircraft landing test is taking place. The plane will not only show touch and go shows on this airstrip in front of the Prime Minister. Rather, it will demonstrate how the three Jaguar Mirage and Sukhoi fighter jets work in wartime, how ground personnel make quick preparations on the runway. Finally, the three-ray air will also be displayed. ACS Home Avnish Awasthi said in a special conversation with Aaj Tak: Purvanchal Expressway is the best highway, built in record time.
Before the inauguration of the Purvanchal Highway, former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav stated today that this Purvanchal Express is the result of his thinking and that he had laid the first stone for it. He also tweeted a photo from his tenure as Chief Minister. In it it is shown that he is laying the first stone for himself. However, Yogi Adityanath today denied this credit of Akhilesh Yadav on this airstrip and said that Prime Minister Modi had laid the first stone and was inaugurating it. The minister in charge, Jai Pratap Singh, said in a special conversation with Aaj Tak that if Akhilesh Yadav wants to take the credit, then turn around and take the credit among the public, but the public knows who has built this highway.
