Longest e-way opens in UP

UP Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday inaugurated the Agra-Lucknow greenfield expressway , dedicating the project to his father, Mulayam Singh Yadav, on the eve of the Samajwadi Party chief' 77th birthday .
The project has achieved many milestones -it is the longest greenfield expressway project in the country built in a record 23 months from inception. What added to the big achievement was three Sukhoi and three Mirage fighter jets of IAF landing on the expressway to mark its official launch.
Inaugurating the project, Mulayam congratulated officials for completing the 302 km six-lane expressway in less than two years and said he was hopeful all government projects were executed with the same alacrity and efficiency .
Akhilesh, who said roads had built America, not the other way around, added that the expressway would serve as a model for the entire country to emulate.
Addressing the crowds at Bangarmau, Akhilesh also attacked the move to demonetise Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 notes. Akhilesh said: “When the new currency notes reaches the market, neither corruption nor black money will stop. A government that makes people unhappy will be shown the door.“
The CM also said the ruling party was now focused on reaching its next milestone, the Purvanchal highway , connecting one end of the state to the other.
