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

Modi says that he had a meeting with the then Uttarakhand CM Vijay Bahuguna with his proposals. PM Modi is in Uttarakhand and after offering his prayers at the Kedarnath temple, he addressed a public meeting where he discussed the development of the shrine.

The Congress leader listed several infrastructure projects like roads, pilgrim shelters, rest houses, houses and river banks approved by the Congress government around the temple which was ravaged by floods in 2013.

After his scathing attack on Congress, PM Modi shed light on BJP's regime in Uttarakhand and the major steps the state government is taking for the development, especially of the Kedarnath shrine. The TV flashed it on screens.

Bahuguna, who was then chief minister of Uttarakhand, however, had to refuse the offer, for reasons he did not specify.

According to media reports, Modi is also scheduled to lay the foundation stone for various projects on Friday. "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", PM Modi said.

He assured that reconstruction of Kedarpuri, with improved facilities for devotees, will be expensive but there will be no dearth of funds.

Narendra Modi, who was the Chief Minister of Gujarat during that time, further said, "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". Narendra Modi also gave the assurance to the people of Kedarnath that in the pursuit of providing modern amenities, the traditional look of the place will be kept intact.
