PM unveils projects for Kedarnath reconstruction

A day before closing of Kedarnath portal for winter break, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Kedarnath and performed 25 minutes long rituals there and unveiled foundation stone of several projects. He prayed for the betterment of the nation and people too. He also visited the site of ongoing projects and instructed them to execute it with more sincerity. Later he addressed to the public and greeted them in garhwali language.

Attacking the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has categorically said that being a chief minsiter Gujarat he had offered reconstruction of Kedarnath temple and its surrounding but then congress led government had rejected it in June 2013.

Modi said he was happy to be at the shrine a day after Diwali and conveyed his greetings at the start of the Gujarati new year. He reiterated his determination for redevelopment of the revered shrine.

He pledged to devote himself fully to realise the dream of a developed India by 2022, the 75th anniversary of Independence. Modi said as Gujarat CM he had visited Uttarakhand in the aftermath of the flash floods to offer help.

“I came here to do all that I could for the victims… I had met the then Chief Minister (Vijay Bahuguna) and offered that Gujarat would redevelop Kedarnath. During the meeting they agreed. And I announced it  outside to the media.

“But when the news was flashed on television, and it reached Delhi, the people there (UPA government) panicked and within hours the state government was pressurised to announce that it will redevelop Kedarnath itself,” Modi alleged.

Modi said after the BJP government came to power in Uttarakhand earlier this year “I understood that the work of Kedaranath redevelopment will be done by us”. In June 2013, then Chief Minister Bahuguna and the Congress party had rebuffed Modi’s offer for redevelopment of Kedarnath and his Rs 3 crore cheque, which was in addition to a Rs 2 crore his state had donated for rain disaster relief.

 PM Modi says that no one speaks lie here because everybody knows that god knows everything and if you speak lie here then you will have to pay its price in future.
Ironically earlier PM was supposed to visit here on October 21 the day when portal would close for winter break but later he changed his plan because temple would close by 11.55 am on October 21. Due to this large number of devotees visit here to witness the august occasion so he might not performed his ritual in case of he would have come late so he decided to pre-pone his visit.
