Hardeep Singh Puri – Union Minister for Civil Aviation :
Privileged to join popular UP CM Sh Yogi Adityanath Ji, state minister Sh Nandi Gupta, Secy MoCA, Chairman AAI & other officials to review progress of upcoming international airport at Kushinagar, one of the principal centers of Buddhist pilgrimage.
Kushinagar, the holy place where Lord Buddha left his corporal self & attained Mahaparinirvana will now have one of Uttar Pradesh’s four international airports.
It will provide direct international & domestic air connectivity to pilgrims, tourists & visitors to this ancient town.
At a review meeting which I attended with UP CM Sh Yogi Adityanath Ji in Kushinagar today we also held constructive discussions on issues pertaining to civil aviation infrastructure & connectivity for Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Agra & Lalitpur.
