Uttar Pradesh will have roads like United States before the end of 2024 and this development of road infrastructure will further lead the way for state's progress, said Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari.

The minister was speaking at an event in Chitbadgaon where he inaugurated and laid foundation stones of seven National Highway projects worth Rs 6,500 crore.

Addressing the event at a UP district, Gadkari said that Uttar Pradesh will become the leading state in the country and called upon farmers to become a provider of food as well as energy.

"The condition of roads in UP was not good before the year 2014. After the Narendra Modi government came to power, National Highway has increased from 7,643 km to 13,000 km in the state," Gadkari said.

"Before the end of the year 2024, Uttar Pradesh will have road infrastructure like in America. The state is growing very fast and its picture will change with the development of roads. The villages and the poor will be happy and prosperous in the state. The youth will also get employment and UP will become the leading state in the country," he said.

"Farmers should become food as well as energy providers and should play a major role in the export of energy," he said.

"Ballia to Buxar can be reached in half an hour, Ballia to Chhapra in one hour and Ballia to Patna in one-and-a-half hour. With the construction of Greenfield Highway, eastern UP will get better connectivity with Chhapra, Patna, Buxar in Bihar," he said.
