CM Yogi urged the Union Minister to undertake airport development works at Hindon, Saharanpur, Meerut, Lucknow and Varanasi in Bareilly, Ghaziabad. He said that with the facility of flying from Bareilly, Hindon, Saharanpur and Meerut, the air services will expand and benefit the citizens of these areas.
