New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday and inaugurate Purvanchal Expressway at Karwal Kheri in Sultanpur district at around 1:30 PM.

After the inauguration, the Prime Minister will also witness an airshow by the Indian Air Force on the 3.2 km long airstrip constructed on the Expressway in Sultanpur district to enable landing/take-off of Indian Air Force fighter planes in case of emergency.

The Purvanchal Expressway is 341 Km long. It starts from village Chaudsarai, district Lucknow located on Lucknow-Sultanpur road (NH-731) and ends at village Hydaria located on National Highway No 31, 18 km east of UP-Bihar border.
