Lucknow: Crediting Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for Lucknow’s development, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh emphasised that without his cooperation, such progress would not have been achievable.

During the inauguration and foundation stone laying ceremony of 206 development projects worth Rs 3666 crore at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan, the Defence Minister emphasized the collaborative effort behind the achievements, stating, “This is no miracle of ours. Being an MP, I have played the role of an ally, while whatever the public representatives here said, kept happening.” Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also present during this event.

The Defence Minister mentioned, “CM Yogi Adityanath was also asking on the stage if there is any other work left to be done.” Extending congratulations to CM Yogi, the Defence Minister expressed that Lucknow is rapidly progressing towards prosperity.

Enumerating projects whose foundation stone was laid, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh highlighted the underpass at the Awadh Chauraha, the four-lane rail over bridge at railway crossing number 188 special at Anupganj on Gosaiganj-Bani-Mohan road, link road between Kisan Path and Bhatgaon Defence node, the two-lane ROB cum flyover from Pucca Bridge to Daliganj and Gomti river bridge, widening of Nishatganj Bandha for road connectivity from Hanuman Setu to Samtamulak intersection, the 100-bed Critical Care Block at Sarojininagar, the 500-bed Advanced Pediatric Center (Phase-I) at SGPGI, and the bridge at Nishatganj under Green Corridor.

He further emphasized that today marks a momentous occasion in the history of Lucknow city. The inauguration of an eight-lane outer ring road, valued at Rs 5500 crore and spanning 104 km around the city, signifies a significant development. This corridor is going to start.

The Defence Minister appealed for a temporary restriction on heavy vehicles along the Kanpur Highway to Hardoi Road for a period of 15 days, allowing only light vehicles. Once operational, the Outer Ring Road is expected to divert an estimated one lakh vehicles daily, offering relief from traffic congestion for city residents. This infrastructure project is poised to accelerate the economic progress of the Municipal Corporation, with numerous schemes planned along its route.

The Defence Minister said that the people of Uttar Pradesh would not have imagined that the BrahMos missile would be made on UP’s soil, adding that the work regarding the project would be completed soon. He also noted the steady progress in Mohanlalganj, a neighbouring area.

Highlighting the global recognition of Lucknow’s economic growth, the Defence Minister referred to the prestigious agency Knight Frank, which publishes quarterly reports on economic progress. According to Knight Frank, Lucknow is among the top ten cities worldwide with the most rapid increase in urban land values.

Regarding infrastructure development, the Defence Minister mentioned the approval of 20 flyovers, with 12 already constructed and work on the rest in progress. He assured the completion of two flyovers at Munshi Pulia and Khurramnagar by the end of April. “Just yesterday, 6300 people from Lucknow and surrounding areas got appointment letters in the employment fair at the Kaushal Mahotsav in Lucknow”, he remarked further.

During this, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, Brajesh Pathak, Government of India Minister and Mohanlalganj MP Kaushal Kishore, BJP State President Chaudhary Bhupendra Singh, Cabinet Minister Suresh Khanna, AK Sharma, Jitin Prasad, Mayor Sushma Kharkwal, MP Brijlal, Ashok Vajpayee, Satyadev Pachauri etc. were present.
