WATCH | PM Modi And Akhilesh Yadav Spar Over Airports As UP Elections 2022 Draw Nearer
As the UP Elections 2022 inch closer, the two main contenders for being the ruing party I the state, i.e., BJP and Samajwadi Party, are sharpening their direct and indirect attacks on each other. The issue of infrastructural development and law and order have come to the fore along with the more typical electioneering in terms of social engineering and communal calculations.
The recently inaugurated Purvanchal Expressway came into the crosshairs of both parties claiming credit not just for the highway but also for the broader infrastructural development of the state. Today as the Prime Minister and current Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were present along with Civil Aviation Ministers of the Union and State (UP) levels for the foundation stone laying of the Noida International Airporty situated at Jewar, let us see what both parties have to say about airports.
While Modi emphasized the airport’s uniqueness in terms of size and its importsance as a logistical hub and converting the outflow of finance into onvestment in the country Akhilesh Yadav said in a recent election rally that the BJP’s rhetoric of progress and development presented in terms of “hawaai chappal” (simple slippers) and “hawaai jahaaz” (airplanes) was totally hollow.
