Heavy rain hits flight services in Gorakhpur

Gorakhpur: The Gorakhpur airport was closed and flights to Delhi were cancelled after heavy rains lashed the Uttar Pradesh city throwing normal life out of gear.

The programme of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who was scheduled to return to Gorakhpur today after inspecting a rally venue of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Maghar, was changed due to rains here.

Modi will address a public rally and lay the foundation stone of a research institute at Maghar tomorrow.

Heavy rainfall since last night has caused water logging in several parts of Gorakhpur and mobile water pumps have been deployed in many localities, officials said.

The Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath airport was closed after "rain water came on the runway", airport director B S Meena said.

"Both Air India and SpiceJet flights to Delhi are cancelled as rain water came on the runway," he said.
