Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s helicopter made an emergency landing at Varanasi airport after a bird-hit incident on Sunday, informed the Varanasi District Magistrate Kushal Raj. The helicopter landed safely at Reserve Police Lines ground. He later boarded a state plane to Lucknow from Varanasi’s Lal Bahadur Shastri International airport. “The CM and his staff are safe and will be travelling to Lucknow by another aircraft,” added Raj.
The CM had come to Varanasi on Saturday and had paid obeisance at Kashi Vishwanath temple, besides holding a review meeting.
