Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his Uttar Pradesh visit today, inaugurated much awaited Bundelkhand Expressway in Jalaun. The newly constructed 296-kilometers-long expressway connects Chitrakoot with the Lucknow-Agra Expressway.
Addressing the masses during the inauguration ceremony, he claimed, “This expressway will not only give speed to the vehicles but will also accelerate the industrial progress of the entire Bundelkhand.” The prime minister cautioned people, especially the youth, against the “revari culture” and said it could be “very dangerous” for the country’s development.
“Revri Baantne Wale Kabhi Vikas Nahi Karenge. Woh Expressway, Airport, Defense Corridor Nahi Banayenge”, said the PM.
“Under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s leadership, Uttar Pradesh is seeing major transformation with better law and order and fast-improving connectivity, “Modi said, and asked people to recall the state of law and order and connectivity in Uttar Pradesh earlier.
PM Modi said the path of development on which the country is moving has two aspects at its core — ‘iraada aur maryada‘ (intent and honour). “We are not only creating new facilities for the present but are also building the future of the country,” he said.
Speaking on the occasion, UP CM Yogi said that to maintain greenery in Bundelkhand, seven lakh trees would be planted on both sides of this expressway. He said that this expressway would not only improve the connectivity but also conserve the environment. The Bundelkhand Expressway passes through seven districts of Uttar Pradesh and has been constructed at a cost of around ₹ 14,850 crore.
