PM Modi raised Kedarnath issue for political gains; says Congress

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives in Uttarakhand

Prime Minister Narendra Modi as part of his scheduled visit to Uttarakhand reached the Kedarnath Temple at around 10 am on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Congress accused Modi of "disrespecting" traditions during his Kedarnath visit and "misleading" the people on redevelopment work of the shrine after the 2013 deluge.

Earlier in the day, former chief minister Harish Rawat also castigated Prime Minister Modi and said, "The Centre does not interfere in such works".

In view of the PMs visit and Diwali, the temple has been decked up with flowers and lights, and most priests have decided not to go home to celebrate the festival.

The Chief Minister at the time was Vijay Bahuguna, who was with the Congress but is now with the BJP.

Carnegie Cap Asset Mngmt Limited Liability Corporation has invested 0.15% in Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST). The retailer reported $2.08 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $2.02 by $0.06.

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.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi spelt out the vast possibilities that the Himalayas offer across sectors including the health sector and what the government was doing to maximise these benefits. In my excitement, I shared the development with the media and within an hour, TV channels flashed it, causing a storm in New Delhi.

"He had kept a proposal to reconstruct shrine devastated in Kedarnath after floods".

He described the projects as ambitious and expensive, but said there would be no dearth of funds to ensure their time-bound completion. After the 2013 disaster, is it only Modiji who is capable of redeveloping Uttarakhand? An approach road would be constructed to the temple to create a "divya vatavaran (divine environment)", the lighting of the road leading to the temple would be done accordingly, he said. While slamming the Prime Minister, the Congress claimed that Modi uttered a slew of lies at the holy place and insulted the deity by keeping his back towards the main entrance door.

"Some acquaintances I met today reminded me of my time spent in Garurchatti". I wanted to settle down permanently in this soil and spend all my life at Baba's feet. "Lekin shayad Baba ne hi tay kiya tha ki ye kaam Baba ke bete ke haath se hi hoga", he said, and the crowd of 4,000 cheered him.
