LUCKNOW/SULTANPUR: Hailing the Purvanchal expressway as a medium to take Uttar Pradesh towards a brighter future, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he could not have imagined that he would land on the same expressway, the foundation stone of which he laid three years ago.
After inaugurating India’s longest functional expressway (341 km), he said: “It is an expressway for development of a new UP, a reflection of modernised facilities and a certification of turning sankalp (decision) into siddhi (fulfilment).”
Recounting various upcoming expressways, including Ganga expressway, Bundelkhand expressway, Gorakhpur Link expressway and Ballia Link expressway, he said that the development of the state was planned not just for five years but the entire decade.
He also witnessed an airshow on the 3.2 km long airstrip constructed on the expressway in Sultanpur district. The PM remarked that the security of the country was equally important as prosperity. He said that keeping that in mind, emergency landing provision for fighter jets was made while constructing the Purvanchal Expressway. “The roar of these planes will be for those who ignored the defence infrastructure in the country for decades,” he said.
Modi added that the state was poised for a balanced development with “ samman” (respect) for West UP measuring equally with the “ prathmikta” (priority) for East UP. “Purvanchal Expressway has not only filled the gap between the east and west but will also facilitate movement of people from Bihar and Delhi,” he said, underscoring that the project will especially be of great help for the areas, which are still “underdeveloped”.
Modi stressed that the expressway will also bring enormous employment opportunities through the industries, which are proposed to be set up in the Purvanchal Expressway Industrial Corridor.
The PM lauded chief minister Yogi Adityanath and his team, besides the people of UP on the completion of Purvanchal Expressway. He also thanked the farmers whose land was acquired for this project. He even lauded the workers and the engineers who were involved in the project.
Modi said that with the active participation of the people, the dream of the development of UP was now visible. “New medical colleges are being built, AIIMS is coming up, modern educational institutions are being built in UP. Just a few weeks ago the international airport in Kushinagar was inaugurated,” he said.
The PM further said it was also a fact that parts of a vast state like UP were earlier cut off from each other to a great extent. “People used to go to different parts of the state but they were troubled due to lack of connectivity. For the people of East Uttar Pradesh, even reaching Lucknow was quite a task.”
He noted that for industrial development of Uttar Pradesh, excellent connectivity is necessary, every corner of UP needs to be connected. “As expressways are getting ready in UP, the work of the industrial corridor has also started. Very soon new industries will start coming up around Purvanchal Expressway,” he said.
He added that the Defence Corridor being built in UP was also going to bring new employment opportunities here. “These infrastructure works in UP will give new heights to the economy in the future,” he said, adding the double engine government in UP was working considering the common people of the state as their family. “An environment is being created for setting up new factories. Keeping in mind the needs of this decade, infrastructure is being built to build a prosperous Uttar Pradesh. The government is working day and night for the all-round development of UP. Along with connectivity, top priority is also being given to infrastructure in UP. In just 2 years, the UP government has provided piped drinking water connection to 30 lakh rural families,” he said, also lauding the Government of Uttar Pradesh for its “excellent work done for vaccination against Covid-19”.
He also lauded the people of UP for “not allowing any political propaganda against the vaccine made in India to propagate”.
