Akhilesh Yadav Shares Photos, Inaugurates Purvanchal Expressway Before PM

Lucknow : The workers of the Samajwadi Party did a symbolic inauguration of the Purvanchal Expressway, which was to be inaugurated by the Prime Minister. Its photo has been shared by Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav on his Twitter. Along with this, he has written on Twitter, accusing him of taking credit for the work of Samajwadi Party, ‘The lace came from Lucknow and the scissors came from New Delhi, ‘Khichham-Kinchai’ has come to take the credit for the work of SP.

“Hope that till now the people of Lucknow sitting alone must have memorized the length of the ‘Samajwadi Purvanchal Expressway’. By inaugurating it with ‘Bahurangi Pushpavarsha’, the SP will answer those with a monochromatic mindset.”

On November 16, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the 341 km long Purvanchal Expressway in Sultanpur, built at a cost of about Rs 22,500 crore.

Akhilesh Yadav on Monday raised questions on the quality of the Purvanchal Expressway and accused the Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath government of compromising on quality to reduce costs. Akhilesh had also announced the inauguration of Purvanchal Expressway in a symbolic way by offering flowers by SP on Tuesday after Ghazipur district administration was not allowed to walk on the expressway.
