Noida International Airport will play a major role in the growing aviation sector of India, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, during the foundation stone event ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly Elections. 

During his address, PM Modi said that the new India of the 21st century is building one of the best modern infrastructures today. “Better roads, better rail network, better airports are not just infrastructure projects but they transform the entire region, transforming people's lives completely," he said.

The Prime Minister said Noida International Airport will become the logistics gateway of northern India. This airport will make the entire region a powerful symbol of the National Gatishakti Masterplan, he added.

Commenting on the economic fallout of infrastructure development, the Prime Minister said employment opportunities are created during airport construction. The airport also requires thousands of people to run smoothly. "Therefore this airport will also give new employment to thousands of people of western UP."

A land-locked state like Uttar Pradesh airport will be very useful. This hub will serve industrial centres like Aligarh, Mathura, Meerut, Agra, Bijnor, Moradabad and Bareilly. He said Khurja artisans, Meerut Sports Industry, Saharanpur furniture, the brass industry of Moradabad, Agra footwear and Petha industry will get huge support from the upcoming infrastructure, the PM added. 

"Infrastructure is not part of politics for us but part of national policy.  We are making sure that the projects do not get stuck, do not hang in limbo or do not go astray. We try to ensure that the infrastructure work is completed within the stipulated time," added the PM. 

Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, Union Ministers Jyotiraditya Scindia, Gen V K Singh, Sanjiv Baliyan, SP Singh Baghel and B L Varma were among those present on the occasion.
