Election Campaign begins: PM Modi lays foundation stone for Noida International Airport

Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday laid the foundation stone for the Noida International Airport at Jewar in Uttar Pradesh, which is slated to be the largest aerodromes in Asia. Taking a swipe at previous governments, PM Modi said Uttar Pradesh was kept in deprivation and darkness earlier but it is now getting what it always deserved and is making its mark internationally under a “double-engine” BJP rule.

The airport, the second International aerodrome in Delhi-National Capital Region, is expected to be operational by September 2024 with an initial capacity to handle 1.2 crore passengers per annum.

It will be the fourth largest international airport in the world and the project would create more than one lakh job opportunities, according to the Uttar Pradesh government.

In an apparent dig at the Opposition, Modi said some political parties in the country have always kept their self-interest paramount. “The thinking of these people is self-interest, their own development and that of their family,” Modi said. “Whereas, we follow the spirit of Nation First…Sabka Saath – Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas – Sabka Prayas is our mantra,” Modi said.
