Providing security and prosperity to the people tops his government's priority, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday.

"Law and order situation in the state has improved. Our priority is to provide security and prosperity to the masses," Adityanath said after inaugurating a 10.30-km-long elevated road.

The newly constructed road is said to be the longest of its kind in the country, connecting UP Gate and Rajnagar Extension here. Built at a cost of Rs 1,147 crore, the six-lane elevated road is supported on 227 pillars. Vehicle owners will be allowed to drive at an average speed of 80 km per hour on the road, said Ritu Maheswar, district magistrate and the vice chairperson of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA).

After inaugurating the road at Rajnagar extension area, the chief minister took it to travel to Vasundhara. Samajwadi Party MLC Rakesh Yadav, had "inaugurated" the road on March 16, claiming that the project was started during his party's rule in the state. An FIR was lodged against Yadav along with several SP workers, according to PTI news.
