According to an official release from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), “The Defence Minister emphasized the collaborative effort behind the achievements during the inauguration and foundation stone laying ceremony of 206 development projects worth Rs 3,666 crore at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan.”
Crediting Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for Lucknow’s development, Rajnath Singh emphasised that without his cooperation, such progress would not have been achievable.
Stating ahead, Singh said, “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 while extending congratulations to CM Yogi, said 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, the link road between Kisan Path and Bhatgaon Defence node.
He also highlighted 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 5,500 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.
