The Prime Minister has already visited UP four times over the last month. Here are the developmental projects launched in Uttar Pradesh in recent years.

On November 16, PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the 341 km-long Purvanchal Expressway, which will connect eastern and western Uttar Pradesh. The expressway will start from Chand Sarai in Lucknow and connect Ghazipur. It was built at a cost of Rs 22,497 crore. The expressway connects nine districts of UP — Lucknow, Barabanki, Amethi, Ayodhya, Sultanpur, Ambedkar Nagar, Azamgarh, Mau and Ghazipur. PM Modi had laid the foundation stone of this expressway in July 2018.

Kushinagar Airport

About a month ago, PM Modi also inaugurated the Kushinagar International Airport on October 20. During the inauguration, PM Modi had said that the Kushinagar airport would be more than just a means of air connectivity. “It will benefit everyone, including farmers, cattle herders, shopkeepers, labourers, and local industrialists. It will create an ecosystem of business,” PM Modi had said.
