Yadav's Special Secretary Pandhari Yadav said the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister would address a public meeting at Morabadi ground on Thursday while party spokesman Rajendra Choudhary said Akhilesh Yadav would also address the party workers.

Earlier, A Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav decided that air strips at Moradabad, Faizabad, Meerut and Saifai be handed over to the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

The AAI would enhance connectivity in western Uttar Pradesh through the Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar air strip at Partapur in Meerut and would also prepare a ‘civil schedule’ for small planes.

Based on requirement, the state government will provide extra land free of cost to the AAI for extension and upgradation of air strips at Faizabad and Moradabad, an official said.

The funds required for this work would be sought through supplementary budget grants in the forthcoming session of the state assembly.
