UPA didn't allow me to rebuild Kedarnath, says Modi

UPA didn't allow me to rebuild Kedarnath, says Modi”

Yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi blamed the former UPA government for stopping him as the Chief Minister of Gujarat from carrying out the reconstruction of the Kedarnath shrine after the 2013 flash floods.

Mr. Modi laid the foundation stones for five major reconstruction projects at Kedarpuri for improved facilities for devotees, construction of retaining walls and ghats at the Mandakini and the Saraswati rivers, an approach road to the temple and reconstructing Adi Sankara's tomb, which was devastated in 2013. "When the 2013 floods happened, I was chief minister of Gujarat and did not wish to encroach into any other state".

Vijay Bahuguna who is now a member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was in Congress when he was the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand in 2013.

Ahead of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's first visit to India and Pakistan next week, USA administration has indicated its understanding about the region by saying that PM Narendra Modi can't "pursue peace" with Pakistan in a way that "cuts his own security". The priests at the Lord Shiva shrine, which was all decked up with yellow flowers, welcomed the Prime Minister.

Narendra Modi raked up the issue of Kedarnath because he has to fight the upcoming elections in Gujarat, the Congress said today.

"I went back disappointed. But perhaps Baba [Lord Shiva] had decided that the responsibility of doing reconstruction work at Kedarnath should be assigned to no one else but to Baba's son", he said. "We think that is so important for them to talk and to build confidence and to get on a path to regional security and stability which we know would bring both countries to unprecedented levels of prosperity", he said.

With Modi, frequently visiting the state, it seems like the Prime Minisy=ter has himself taken the command in his hand to make sure that the BJP wins the poll at any cost.

"Our endeavour is to harness the youthful vigour and water of the mountain State for its all-round development. development is gaining ground in Uttarakhand". They were important moments of my life. "I want Uttarakhand to be the best tourist destination".

During his visit, the Afghan President would meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj would also call on him.
