LUCKNOW: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Varanasi, inspected the recently inaugurated Shivpur-Phulwaria-Lahartara road last night. The Prime Minister was accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

'Upon landing in Kashi, inspected the Shivpur-Phulwaria-Lahartara Marg. This project was inaugurated recently and has been greatly helpful to people in the southern part of the city,' Modi wrote on his X page.

Built at a cost of Rs 360 crore, the road reduces the travel time between the Banaras Hindu University and the Varanasi airport from 75 minutes to 45 minutes. Similarly, it also reduces the travel time between Lahartara and Kachahri from 30 minutes to 15 minutes.

Earlier on his arrival to Varanasi, Prime Minister Modi was welcomed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and state BJP President Bhupendra Chaudhary at the airport.

Modi will attend various events in Varanasi today. Officials said that the Prime Minister will participate in a ceremony held at Banaras Hindu University. He will then visit Sant Guru Ravidas Janmasthali later in the day. The Prime Minister will perform pooja and darshan at Sant Guru Ravidas Janmasthali and around 11.30 am, he will attend a public function commemorating the 647th birth anniversary of Sant Guru Ravidas. Modi will also lay the foundation for and inaugurate projects worth more than Rs 13,000 crore during his two-day visit to Varanasi.
