The Prime Minister will inaugurate 12 new terminal buildings at airports in Pune, Kolhapur, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Delhi, Lucknow, Aligarh, Azamgarh, Chitrakoot, Moradabad, Shravasti, and Adampur.

These new terminal buildings will have a combined capacity to serve 620 lakh passengers annually, while the three terminal buildings for which the foundation stone is being laid will increase the combined passenger handling capacity of these airports to 95 lakh passengers per annum. These terminal buildings will feature state-of-the-art amenities and sustainability features such as insulated roofing systems, energy-saving canopies, and LED lighting, among others.

In line with his vision of providing housing for all, Prime Minister Modi will also inaugurate the Light House Project (LHP) in Lucknow and Ranchi.

Similar LHPs were earlier inaugurated by the Prime Minister in Chennai, Rajkot, and Indore.

Furthermore, Prime Minister Modi will dedicate to the nation and lay the foundation stone for several road projects in Uttar Pradesh, totaling around Rs 11,500 crore. These projects aim to improve connectivity, reduce traffic congestion, and promote socioeconomic development in the region.

Additionally, the Prime Minister will dedicate to the nation approximately 744 rural road projects worth more than Rs 3700 crore, constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana. These projects will see the construction of over 5400 km of rural roads in Uttar Pradesh, benefiting approximately 59 districts and enhancing connectivity in the state.

During the visit, Prime Minister Modi will also inaugurate, dedicate, and lay the foundation stone for multiple rail projects worth around Rs 8200 crore, aimed at strengthening rail infrastructure in Uttar Pradesh.
