PM Modi inaugurates the 341km long Purvanchal Expressway

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated the 341km long Purvanchal Expressway in Karwal Kheri in Sultanpur district, Uttar Pradesh. Addressing the gathering, PM Modi invoked Lord Hanuman who killed Kalnami. “I bow to the people of that land," he said.

Following the inauguration, he is scheduled to witness an airshow by the Indian Air Force on the 3.2km airstrip constructed on the Purvanchal Expressway to enable landing and take-off of IAF fighter planes in case of emergency.

The Purvanchal Expressway starts from village Chaudsarai in the Lucknow district and ends at Haidaria village on National Highway number 31, 18 kilometres east of the Uttar Pradesh-Bihar border.
