On November 25,2021, PM Modi announced the construction of the Jewar Airport in Greater Noida which is said to be ready by 2024. In order to celebrate this development, hundreds upon hundreds of users posted a graphic of PM Modi and CM of UP Yogi Adityanath on the background of the picture of a very futuristic looking airport. The images were posted to congratulate the government for this step.
